Holiday Heart Warms the Heart!!!
14 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this film numerous times. I have done so because this movie is wonderful, it teaches honesty, love, understanding and forgiveness. It also places emphasis on how to be a friend and open minded in the time of adversity. This movie is heart warming, sad, happy and very much entertaining. Being different only adds to the mystique of being an individual. This movie teaches us that we must be there when needed and that someone will be there we they are needed. DON'T JUDGE...LISTEN TO WHAT THEIR HEART IS SAYING!!! As Holiday says: "Honey, we all have a story to tell"...and we do.

Listen...Understand...Know!!!

Please take the time to enjoy this wonderful movie!
