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 »

This is got to be one of the best Christmas movie's ever made. Olivia Newton-John and Gregory Harrison do a wonderful job in this movie. I would love to see them in another movie together. They act together as well as Olivia and John Travolta do. I recommend this movie to everyone who love's Christmas movie's. Olivia's real life daughter Chloe is also in this movie and she does an excellent job of acting herself. Chloe and her mother Olivia also star in another movie together called The Wilde girl's which is also a movie to see. I believe Chloe will be starring in other movie's, as she is a good actress like her mother. Those who will watch this movie will by no mean's be disappointed.
