Favorite Old Christmas Movie

The House Without A Christmas Tree
is one of my favorite Christmas holiday
movies.  I began watching this with my
children, on television, in l972. 
 The story is about Addie, a young 
girl living in Nebraska, l946, who wants
nothing more than a Christmas tree. Her
mother, having died when she was born,
 lives with her father and
grandmother. Her father, played 
by Jason Robards, is a 
bitter man refusing her to have a tree.

There is one scene in which Addie uses
a "not so nice word" but otherwise the
movie is suitable for family with pre-teen
and older children.

In the scene shown here, Addie is baking
Christmas cookies with her grandmother.
The cookies are delivered by the father
to poor families in the neighborhood.
This is a lovely and heart warming 
little movie and I highly recommend it.
It can be purchased on Amazon or
viewed on Youtube.

Have a sweet ole' day!  Dee Dee
