Christmas Carolers (if there were any in 1775) would not have been singing "Deck the Halls" in 1775. The English language version of that carol ("Nos Galen" a New Year's song from Wales) did not appear until the 1880s. See more »
I just happened upon this movie last night on TV. And, I was pleasantly delighted by it. It was a nice, wholesome film that also had a great lesson in history. We're taught history in school, but what I've always enjoyed is knowing the "real life" parts of what happened. What were people doing at that time? What were their pastimes? How did they dress? How did they interact with each other on a daily basis? This movie was an example of that. It took a key time in American history (right before Revolutionary War) and explored the day-to-day lives of a family. That's what I love to know about.
I loved that this was a movie that the whole family could enjoy together. It's a refreshing change from what we usually see on TV and in the movies.
Please, Hollywood! More of these types of films! There IS a market for it out here!
