Best story ever!
1 December 2005 | by virginia_macdSee all my reviews

This has got to be the best Christmas show ever. Years ago I came across this movie and loved it the first time. I thought it depicted the feeling of Christmas or of what Christmas is all about. I seen it again the next year and was able to tape it myself. Sadly, someone taped over it and I haven't seen it on TV since. What a shame this one fell through the cracks, I can't believe they put the junk on that they do and not this movie. This one should be at the top just like Scrooge and all the rest. Every year I keep looking and hoping they put on this movie for Christmas, but they don't. I am trying to find one to buy, that's hard too. If there is anyone out there who has a copy I would really appreciate it if I could get a copy from you.
