A young minister brings electricity to an English village during the late 20th Century, threatening a local tradition involving a candle capable of delivering Christmas miracles. According to local legend, an angel visits the quaint hamlet of Gladbury every 25 years, touching a candle produced by the local candlemaker, and giving one lucky family a Christmas miracle. Now the year is 1890, and as Christmas approaches, youthful minster David Richmond (Hans Matheson) arrives in Gladbury convinced that the locals will embrace the convenience of electricity with open arms. Meanwhile, the tempestuous candlemaker sees electricity as a direct threat to his livelihood, and plots to ensure that the legend is preserved. When the one blessed candle disappears, however, the citizens of this quaint hamlet have a Christmas like none ever before.~Jason Buchanan

Excellent Christmas Movie
Very good story line...excellent cast....excellent movie.
So we all know Santa isn't real and Christmas has become more of a commercial holiday than ever. This movie brings back some of the old fashioned spirit to the holiday. Mind you, not if the Pastor has his way. He wants to modernize the holiday and get rid of the Christmas Candle legend. Well, things don't go as expected. This is a lovely story told and acted very well and will leave you with that old Christmas spirit you had as a child.
A recent Christmas film for people of all ages. Beautifully set in turn of the century England when electricity was beginning to replace candles for interior lighting. Symbolical blending of the spiritual & material worlds within an interesting story requiring religious faith in God and in oneself. The story, photography, sets, music and acting are all first rate. Deserves to become in time a Christmas classic.
This is a meaningful Christmas movie, a period-piece with authentic sets, production values, good actors. If you are looking for a good story without the romance of Hallmark's many offerings, this is an excellent alternative. I bought the DVD after I stumbled across it on cable TV but missed the beginning. Wanted it for my Christmas DVD collection.
Not my favorite Christmas movie of all time by any means but as far as Christmas movies go it's a good one to add to your collection . Always seems to be on pretty good priced sale so it won't hurt the wallet adding it to your collection . Enjoyable for all ages and a great movie .
This story set in the late 1800s in England
Was a wonderful blend of a villages Christmas Story and faith and a reminder of what faith and Christmas are about. The costumes and scenery were well done as was the acting and story.
The addition of Susan Boyle’s beautiful voice was a plus. This is a nice addition to the Christmas DVD collection.
