    Growing up in the 70's one of the favorite tv shows in our family was the Waltons. This movie was the catalyst for the show. Some of the characters are not the ones that starred in the show (grandpa, mom and dad Walton, Ike Godsey, etc) but the story is a good one, nonetheless,based on a real families struggles during one Christmas during the Depression. Many solid family values are represented. It is a reminder of how many families used to live, where love and respect were the rule instead of the exception.
