Christmas Episode is still a classic.
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you have not seen this segment, you need to find it and watch it. I was lucky enough to find it on a Christmas Holiday Classics set. Betty White has an elderly neighbor who's only responsibility seems to be fixing supper for his son in the evenings. The rest of the day, he is visiting his neighbors trying to find something to do so he feels useful. Betty decides to get him a part-time job for Christmas at a department store in the area. One of her good friends is a clerk there (played by Nancy Kulp). When Betty calls, she is assured that her department manager will hire anyone who can move during the holiday regardless of age. Betty takes Burt Nestin to the department store and introduces him to everyone. The manager of the toy department (played by Hanley Stafford) does not like children or Christmas. However, he hires the old gentleman to play Santa Claus. Everyone is about to get a good reminder of just what Christmas is all about. I can't tell more without spoiling the story, but it is a beautiful Christmas story with at least 4 big lessons being learned. Stories like this are timeless and should never be forgotten.
