Family oriented movie

This has become one of my favorites and a new tradition to watch each Christmas since I bought the DVD. I'm a loyal Kaniac, true, but the message in the movie is all the more reason to watch it. I think today's kids can handle the mildly done scenes - [a bit of slapstick, a smidgen of 'violence' that is laced with humor, and the barest suggestion of a sexual situation] - at age ten and up, and depending on the maturity level of your child I'd bet a seven year old would love it. The message of hope, togetherness, love, devotion and perseverance is wound around a Christmas theme in a beautiful Colorado town that personifies the season. There is a surprise ending that will bring tears and warm your heart. I highly recommend this Christmas movie!
