Perhaps in Canada this occurs later but I assure the viewer that in the Pacific Northwest of the United States girls have their ears pierced anywhere from birth on up, even as early as my own at age 13 in 1971.
This is a movie that young children can enjoy as a Christmas tradition without anything objectionable for parents to be concerned about. All in all, a reasonable choice for families.
