So sad!

This movie is extremely sad and I’m surprised is recommended for 6 years old. The is very slow which doesn’t help…

Almost as good as the original Angela film

My 4yo granddaughter started watching this when she was 3yo and has loved it ever since. Like the first film, Angela's Christmas, it tells a story about a small girl and her family in Ireland at Christmas, It is so beautifully animated and very funny at times. We have watched it with our now 4yo granddaughter over and over. Again, like the first film, it is a nice way to slow down for bedtime and feel the Christmas spirit (although our granddaughter wants to watch both of these films all year round.) And the narration is delightful. While not quite matching the original film, it is a treasure.
