Okay, if you don't want a sad movie, this movie is not for you. That doesn't make it a bad movie. Any number of stars in a mistake. You just got the wrong movie.
If you throw up at the thought of tender, affirmative feelings, this movie is not for you. That doesn't make it a bad movie. There a millions of hostile movies out there. Pick one.
News flash: there really ARE towns in the U.S. like the one in the movie (which was in Nova Scotia). If you hate small, friendly towns, then stay away from them. They probably wouldn't like you either.
On the other hand, if you like the feelings that are supposed to be associated with Christmas, this movie is a rare find. It's very easy to flub on tragic scenes. This movie doesn't. The acting by Kimberly Williams is just right. The timing and the scripting of the scenes is just right. As Maria Del Mar said in the special feature, these people act the way people really act. They don't throw things or rant the way most movie scripts have it. Maria, by the way, played her part very effectively.
I'm no fan of Rob Lowe, but his lawyer convinced me. Maybe I've known too many like him. They really are like this. If this strikes you as stiff, get over it. You want a lawyer, this is a lawyer.
I'm as easily depressed as the next guy, but I did not find this movie depressing. Tragic, yes. Depressing, no. Not sure why. The fact that the husband and son were going to go on, going to make it and be okay. The reformation of Robert was credible. It was thoroughly prepared and touching.
So, I found it a cathartic movie and very much in the true spirit of Christmas.
Note: I see a sequel to this movie was made in 2005, called "The Christmas Blessing" about the little boy when he is grown up and becomes a doctor. It stars Neil Patrick Harris, who is an outstanding actor. I hope it is released on dvd sometime soon.
I loved the song it was based on by "New Song", and this prompted me to watch.
It is the kind of movie that makes you think about what is really important in your life.
It touched me so much that it brought me to tears.
It is a wonderful movie for everyone, and is not just a "Girlie movie".
Would recommend this to anyone, and I can't wait to own it once released to DVD.

Got this as a gift for my sister for Christmas. Rob Lowe's souless eyes are even more terrifying in HD. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Amazon Customer
The most beautiful yet tear-jerking movies of all time. Very meaningful. My friends and I loved it, but had to share a large box of tissue.Published 20 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a very touching movie. If you are an emotional individual, have some tissue available. If anyone you loved just recently died it might be a little difficult to watch... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Leonard

|Sequel to THe Christmas Shoes||
the sequel is called the "The Christmas Blessing" and it is not on video yet. They will probably make us wait 2 years for this one. But I must say it is not as good as the "The Christmas Shoes".
