Finally, after waiting for years and watching it on PBS, "A Child's Christmas in Wales" is released on DVD. This quiet little gem is probably the most beautiful Christmas story ever produced, bar none. If you are a fan of the English Language spoken as it was intended, and of a quieter, more gentle time in history, you will love this Dylan Thomas based story as seen through the eyes of a grandfather and his grandson. Set in contemporary Wales on Christmas Eve, the grandfather recounts his memories of Christmas when he was a boy to his young grandson with the story shifting seamlessly back and forth between the historical and the present. The characters are wonderfully portrayed, and supported by beautiful costumes and Welsh small town scenes, while the narration paints vignettes that range from the comic to the poignant. This hour-long gem should be viewed in front of a blazing fireplace with an eggnog in one hand and with one's children and grandchildren gathered around. It is a priceless reminder of a time when people really knew what Christmas is all about.
