Goofs

When Grace checks the sanctuary to see if people are filling it, Mrs. Clausing can be seen in the center of the shot in a brown blouse, waiting for the pageant to begin. A few shots after this she is greeted by the minister as she enters the sanctuary, with coat on, just ahead of Mrs. Herdman. See more »

Quotes

Beth Bradley: [to the camera about the Herdman's visit to church] Before the service was over, they cleaned out the collection plates, scribbled on the bibles, and stuck gum all over the pews.

A movie I'll never forget!
24 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought of this movie just today but couldn't remember the name of it. I called my mom, who was a teacher at the time I saw the movie at school, and ask her if she remembered the movie so I could search for it online. She didn't help a bit. So, I called my brother to see if he remembered it and he had no clue. So I ended up just browsing threw all online Christmas movies to find it. Now I'm 23 years old and I watched that movie when I was in 3rd grade! I remember all of it! My teacher, where we watched the movie and everything! I have bought the movie and my Husband and I are taking it this year to our family get-together for our whole family to watch. A definitely Must See!!!
