The Dr. told me it was going to be a long time for it to be in pain.

I hope you get well, we miss you around her.

They follow this man around who transforms himself to becoming Santa. Others are interviewed as well and some history about Santa. I loved it! It's available on Netflix, if you have it. That is where I watched it.



I loved that film. It does bring tears to your eyes, it was on The O network last year (2011) and I was hoping it was going to be on again this past Christmas but no luck. I want to get the DVD to add to my Christmas movie collection.

She has seen all these before but it's been over 20 years since the last time she watched it. I love seeing her and my aunt playing together, swimming at the beach, dancing, roller skating, riding bikes, traveling and more!

Xmas365, I was trying to figure out how I could give her that on DVD as a gift. It won't be possible because we have already been discussing getting this done together soon. But you gave me a really great idea! I make videos all the time with my grandchildren set to music. I also do videos for our church for certain services. A lot of editing and music added. My mom has always enjoyed my videos I make. Since these films are silent, I was thinking when I can get this transferred digitally I will try to edit clips to music and give her that for Christmas. She will LOVE it!!! So thanks for the idea!
Try to figure out what years they are, and do it with music from that era. Or you could overdub it like the Kung Fu movies, "Give me the ball, young grasshopper!"

It's supposed to be a documentary about the people who become professional Santas. I've been looking forward to that one, too.
I've been wanting to see that one also.

Owwweee! I was out of work for 6 weeks, in a boot for about 4 of those weeks. Mine was a partial tear, the Dr said I would have been better off tearing it completely, then they could have done surgery. Only time could heal it.
