Trivia

The younger daughter is seen, and heard, reading from an old (British?) children's book with a title that is partly "Blackie's ...", a popular publishing company in the 1930s and later specializing in children's anthologies. It may be from this old book (her father's family lived in the remote cottage for generations) that the younger daughter has learned about the Legend of the Christmas Stranger, and, when the young man comes around to collect the overdue mortgage payments, she is convinced he is their Christmas Stranger. However, the actual legend is never explained, and the traditional Legend is about a child who arrives at a house, cold and hungry, and is given warm hospitality, and eventually is revealed to be the Christ Child. The debt-collector is, more or less given a warm welcome, but is not the Christ Child, of course. See more »

Although is was filmed and released in 1994, it is my favorite Christmas Movie.
21 December 2003 | by (Athens, AL) – See all my reviews

The Christmas Stranger was an excellent storyline. The casting was great. The story was a lot like my life, except I haven't found the right man after my husbands sudden death. I love Christmas just as Julia, can't bake like her though. But, back to the movie, it was great, I wished I could own it on VHS or DVD. I would love that.
