A worthy sequel...
Verified purchase
This is a great sequel to "Christmas in Canaan". Be warned though, if you're expecting an airheaded, dime a dozen, Hallmark rom-com Christmas movie, you will be disappointed. This is a family drama that just happens to have Christmas come into play at a point.

Good attempt at a sequel
Verified purchase
We got this after watching and really enjoying the first picture "Christmas Comes to Canaan". Like many other sequels it doesn't quite measure up to the original but I would never discourage anyone from getting a copy and watching it. But this should not be viewed if you haven't seen the original first. The ending of the picture left something to be desired as well. Two main characters left "dangling" and almost screaming for the third film in a trilogy. If there's one out there I'd like to know about it and I would certainly buy a copy to finish "the rest of the story".

Does a lot of skipping and pausing.

The DVD was supposed to be a new copy. Have problems with it playing and still haven't been able to watch in its entirety.

It's What Christmas and Everyday is about
Verified purchase
I was surprised at Billy Ray Cyrus performance. Perhaps a little laid back. The movie is about a White family taking in a Black child. I can relate my son has done the same thing. It shows how we can love each other no matter the color of the skinor background of the person. I liked it so much I ordered the second movie.

This is a very wonderful, heart-warming Christmas movie

This is a very wonderful, heart-warming Christmas movie. I saw it on TV a few years ago and was very happy to see it available here on Amazon. I can't wait to watch it again, although it probably won't be until next year at Christmas time. I also purchased a copy of it for my mom and dad. They love good, family-oriented Christmas shows as much as I do. Thank you!!!

I enjoyed this movie but my husband didn't.
Verified purchase
I enjoyed this movie but my husband found it boring and went to bed. It won't be on my annual Christmas movie watch list but I'll probably bring it out every other year.
