... "A Child's Christmas in Wales." No matter that Christmas was a week ago; no matter that I have no known ancestors in Wales. Sometime during the weeks before or after Christmas, I find an hour to watch this movie. It is one of my favorites.
The story was written by Dylan Thomas and is brought to life by several dozen actors. On Christmas Eve young Thomas, hoping to stay up later than usual, asks his grandfather, Old Geriant, about the Christmases of his childhood in the late 1800s. Experiences from Grandfather's childhood come to life before our eyes as we listen to the stories he tells Thomas.
This gentle, humorous movie speaks to me of family, of childhood, of love, and of family history. I highly recommend it.
