Must See Holiday Special Angel’s Christmas + DVD Giveaway

Must See Holiday Special Angel's Christmas

Just in time for the holiday season, the Emmy nominated animated special ANGELA’S CHRISTMAS is now available on DVD and digital download in the U.S. The half-hour holiday film is based on the popular and only children’s story from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt.

Netflix original short film, Angela’s Christmas is a new, family-favorite Christmas classic that celebrates the magic and generosity of the holiday season. Set in Ireland in the early 1900s, ANGELA’S CHRISTMAS is a funny, heart-warming and poignant story about the power of family and the innocent desire of a child to ensure everyone is safe, warm and loved at Christmas time. The film tells the story of six-year-old Angela, who – while attending mass on Christmas Eve – notices the statue of Baby Jesus lying in the manger. Worried that the underdressed statue will be cold in the cavernous church, Angela decides to “rescue” the statue and bring him home to warm him up.

The film stars Oscar-nominated Ruth Negga (LovingPreacher) in the role of Angela’s mother, and Lucy O’Connell (Oscar nominated Song of the Sea) as Angela. The film is written by Will Collins (Song of the SeaWolfwalkers) and Damien O’Connor (AnyaDoc McStuffins), and directed by Damien O’Connor. Ellen McCourt, Frank’s widow, serves as an Executive Producer on the project and Malachy McCourt (Brewster’s MillionsThe January ManOne Life to Live), an Irish-American actor, writer and politician, and Frank’s brother, provides the narration. ANGELA’S CHRISTMAS is produced by award-winning animation studio Brown Bag Films and distributed by 9 Story Distribution International.

The film also features an original song from 2x Grammy award-winner Dolores O’Riordan, the late singer of the hugely popular Irish band The Cranberries. The DVD release features a Making Of documentary which includes interviews with Ellen and Malachy McCourt.

Our thoughts: Angel’s Christmas is a beautiful tale that reminds us of the meaning of family, love and bringing comfort to those in need. It brings a few tears and lots of joy to see the togetherness even through hardship. It is a lesson I am proud to share with my youngsters and hope you will too!

Angel’s Christmas is available on digital (streaming) through, iTunes and Google Play. As well as on DVD in-store at Walmart and online through mass retailers.

  1. I feel it’s important to know that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus on Christmas. Thanks!

  2. I feel like it important to remember that it is about the birth of Jesus. And it is important to give back to others and spend time with family.

  3. I would watch with my family. Remember what this season is about – Jesus’s birth and to help others.

  4. I think it’s very easy to get caught up in everything around the Holidays, which is totally fine! However I do think it is important to remember how important family and friends are to you and to help those less fortunate whenever you have the chance.

  5. Well right now, my oldest son is home from college. He likes to talk at night when I am ready to start winding down for bed. Even though he frustrates me (I swear he does it on purpose), I have to realize when he graduates in 2 years, he wont be coming home anymore

  6. I would love to watch this movie with my granddaughter I’m sure she would enjoy it very much, and would probably do the same thing and want to get baby jesus warm

  7. I feel it is important to remember the less fortunate and lonely people. A couple of people we know lost their spouses and they didn’t have any children or family, so they always have an open invitation and not just on the holidays. My daughter works at a food pantry and we always give to it. Sometimes she gets her kids involved! I am so proud of them!! One thing we do every year, is give new toys and clothes to our Village Hall to help the local families. Some of their situations have turned for the worst 😢 I have given many of the toys, DVDs, and some of the clothing that I have won from these giveaways! We are seniors on Social Security and couldn’t have done some of these things without these giveaways!! I thank all of the bloggers and companies who give back!! Thank you 😍

  8. I feel is important to remember that not everyone may have family to celebrate with. It’s always nice to include someone new in your celebration.
