Best christmas movie i have watched
7 January 2018 | by VinFurrSee all my reviews

This is one of the best christmas movie i ever have watched. The movie has a cozy atmosphere, a good family-friendly story and the movie can make everyone think that you will never be too old to belive in Santa Claus. The beginning of the story will tell you why carpenter Andersen loved/belived in Santa Claus like noone else, but one christmas something special happens... At some point of the movie some of you may feel a strange (but good) feeling of a mixture of a magical and a cozy atmosphere. The movie later ends in a fun way that suits very well with a popular christmas song for childrens (in Norway) that will be played when the staff credits comes right after the end of the movie.

Merry Christmas!
