I agree, great film
4 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All the previous comments are on the button. This is a great, family film that I enjoyed a lot. Thank God for Hallmark. They refuse to let the family time die. If it were not for movies like this, I think the holidays would be much less enjoyable. I really miss those evenings when my mom, dad and I would find our favorite chair, hurry to get the cocoa and cookies setup in time for the movie. Just the lights from the tree, a few scented candles and the flicker of the TV. Sit back and be taken into the Christmas magic of a good movie. Those times are leaving us. Everything it too fast, too commercial, to liberal, too "xmas"! Movies like this save the spirit. All season I scan the satellite guide on Hallmark, Gospel Music Channel, TBN and others looking for films like this. And guess what, I am a guy. A 49 year old guy that misses a world where a family was mom, dad and a kid or three. When Merry Christmas wasn't grounds for a law suit. When the City Hall had a beautiful nativity scene and people could say Christmas was a celebration of the birth of Jesus. Shamless ad: Visit Amazon.com. They have a 3 DVD set, this film, A Christmas Visitor and Christmas Snow. All for a really good price.
