Had to watch this twice

Review Date 2/17/2018

PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. I HAVE OVER 400 REVIEWS OF "CHRISTMAS RELATED FILMS & SPECIALS" WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

This is a weird version of "The Night Before Christmas"/ It's well made but its weird . This animation is very good. The story however fails the animation.

This is not as good as one would hope it would be but it is worth watching. The story is this:

After losing their way, Katie and Makean are rescued by the Candleman, who imparts wisdom and stories. Opening his book, he reads the classic tale, "The Night Before Christmas". Katie and Makean become characters in the poem. A classic stop-motion animated film filled with nostalgic Christmas carols excites the imaginations of young and old leaving everyone with the spirit of Christmas.

Now I had to watch this twice. I watched it and I did not remember too much about it. So as soon as I could I watched it again. I still didn't remember it the next morning. T
