Has No Other Christmas Episode Touched On This Subject?
16 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

It was only a few years ago that I would first see some of this show on the Hallmark channel, which became available to my area and just as quickly vanished.

I only saw a few episodes of HCTB, but did see the Christmas episode here, and amazingly enough, managed to record it and keep it.

I cannot believe this episode isn't discussed or aired more at Christmas.

Two little girls mistakenly believe that because a baby is born on Christmas day, it will be crucified on Easter, so they steal the baby away.

Perhaps it was too corny to be believed, it was too childish, but it would have been absolutely remarkable to have seen this program as a small child and recalled it.

So many Christmas episodes of shows do Scrooge or a Nativity takeoff or Being Together Is All That Matters.

I'm watching it as I type this, and already the show played the more familiar musice used on baby Tabitha on Bewitched when it showed the newborn.

It's definitely different, even if it looks like so many other shows from that time.
