[first lines]
Narrator: Of all the Christmas tree ornaments turned out that year, very long ago, only one had a happiness. His name was Noel, and at the very moment he was created, old Herman, the glass blower, received truly joyous news. Elise, his only daughter, had just given birth to a baby girl. He was a grandpa, at last! And being quite emotional for a glass blower, Herman cried for pure joy. It was Noel's good fortune that that one merry tear became part of him.

I love this movie so friggin much!
17 December 2012 | by stevienichole_88See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was 4 years old. MY father, having shared a love of Charlton Heston with his own mother in movies like "Ben Hurr" and "The 10 Commandments" recorded this movie for me on a battered VHS that already contained recordings of "Bambi" and "Beauty and the Beast". Red was my favorite color and I instantly fell in love with this adorable bouncing red ornament, I was so taken that my mother even hand painted me a red ornament to look just like Noel, oh how I cried the Christmas that got broken :( I would watch this movie religiously every Christmas until I was about 14 and we got a DVD player. Whatever happened to that old VHS I'm just not sure and when I became a mother I was heartbroken I wouldn't be able to share this much loved holiday movie with my own children. I was certain such an old and obscure little TV movie would impossible to find online but to my surprise and delight I did find it the sound is a bit off but being able to see this cherished childhood classic again and to share it with my boys is just Priceless :)
