Each year our family looked forward to this movie being aired on LMN. As more modern movies full of fluff began to air this movie was pushed aside. I was delighted to find it on Christianbook and at a great price. This is a delightful movie that our entire family enjoys watching. We never tire of the message of family and forgiveness. The Christmas Wish has suspense, surprises, and reconciliation. Ultimately, the message of forgiveness is one from which we all can learn.
This is a wonderful story wrapped in a mystery, with a Christmastime setting. The story is well-told and enjoyable to watch. The protagonist is given the opportunity to discover himself as he uncovers the legacy that his grandfather and father have left to him. He also learns lessons about character, motivation, and loyalty. This is not a story focusing on the birth of the Christ child, but it is a worthwhile story nonetheless.
