Christmas tradition, love and sacrifice
9 December 2018 | by kimberlymackieSee all my reviews

Sorry but whoever gave this episode one star clearly doesn't understand. I grew up in the 70s when things were more simple and traditional. I read the Little House books and watched the series when it came out. These stories were based on Lara Ingalls factual life growing up with much hardship in the late 1800s. This episode is on my annual list of favorite Christmas shows and movies. It shows what real love and sacrifice is all about, something people of today's instant, modern and selfish world can't comprehend. I've been watching this for over 40 years and it makes me cry every time. How many can honestly say they would sacrifice so much.
