A simple Christmas reunion is good.
19 February 2002 | by (San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

A white Christmas approaches. WWII rages on in Europe. A smiling mother cashes in all of her ration-stamps to purchase the best Christmas dinner she can. Happiness is where you find it.

This is a small town. Everyone knows everyone. Tough times bring them even closer.

The one person no one wants to see at his door is the local Western Union man, because most of the news he delivers are telegrams from the War Department: We regret to inform you that your son was killed in the war. Unfortunately, he makes his rounds too often.

One family is safe from telegrams. A very pregnant wife awaits the Christmas Day arrival of her long-away love, at last his hitch with the army is over. Her sister-in-law gets off from her welding job on Christmas Eve, and heads home by bus to reunite with her brother, picking up a soldier with no family of his own, on the way home, and inviting him to have a home-cooked Christmas dinner.

This is one of my favorite Christmas movies. Simple things are the best. Watch this one, and have a Christmas dinner on me. Bon appetit.
