"I'm starting-off my Holiday Christmas Season, by watching, "The Christmas Gift", starring John Denver, this Thanksgiving Day! (2012)
The video is not HD, moreso VHS quality, regardless, I am 100% thrilled.., that, I was "smart" enuff to request the additional artwork & case, too! "The Christmas Gift" DVD fits snugly alongside the Bing Crosby & Pery Como specials, I have, in my personal Christmas DVD collection!
* Merrily, I'm gonna OPEN this GIFT, every Christmas! Immediately upon hitting PLAY on my DVD, I seemed to be instantly transported back to a simpler time, where, a warm f.e.e.l.i.n.g. of CHRISTMAS's past, filled my home with JOY ~ (Joy to the World!)"
