5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Holiday Tale!!!! April 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If you are addicted to vintage holiday films like I am, than you will asolutely love this one! It's simplistic return to a another era is wonderful, and the message given is still clear. Include this one in your holiday round-up of films and watch with your family. It's priceless!

Joe Santa Claus is story how The Christmas Spirit can truly change a persons heart once that person begins to participate in giving during the Christmas season. Joe was a much better person after working at being the store's Santa.

The Orphans Christmas is another example how Christmas and some well meaning rogues can change a persons heart for the better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming December 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I really enjoyed watching both these movies.

Joe Santa Claus is about a man whose department was downsized and was told that his new job would be to play the part of Santa Claus. He didn't want to be the Santa Claus and tried to pass it on to the janitor, but the boss told Joe that the janitor was not expendable and too valuable to the company. The janitor was helpful to Joe, though the janitor wished he could have had the opportunity to play the Santa Claus.

The Orphans' Christmas is sort of like the "Annie" Movie, but with a little buccaneer twist to it.

Both movies were a delight to watch.
