Item Description...
The King family from the Road to Avonlea television series gather together during the first World War to celebrate the holidays. The season is a time of crisis for the family this year, however, as eldest son Felix who was fighting overseas has been listed as missing in action. Meanwhile, Aunt Hetty grapples with loneliness and a potentially fatal back injury; Felicity searches for a new career; and Olivia considers moving back to Avonlea.

Publishers Description
From the producers of Anne of Green Gables. The award-winning cast returns for this touching King Family reunion. An uplifting drama that reinforces the power of family and love in times of crisis.

Community Description
An uplifting drama that reinforces the power of family love in times of crisis.

An Avonlea Christmas pays tribute to the indomitable and sometimes intolerable matriarch of the King family, Hetty King. When she suddenly collapses during the holidays, Hetty is hospitalized. Feeling homesick and alone, she begins to re-evaluate her relationships and her accomplishments in life.

The story takes place against the backdrop of World War I as the King family prepares for its traditional Christmas dinner. The reunion is marred by the fact that one of its youngest members, Felix, is missing in action; making differences of opinion about the war effort glaringly obvious.

This wonderful and accomplished cast comes together in an uplifting drama that illustrates the frailty of life and the importance of strength of family in turbulent times.

A Family Friendly movie at a Great Price  Dec 15, 2006
I loved watching the Anne of Green Gables movies when they came out in the 80's.
When Road to Avonlea series aired on Australian TV in the 90's. I again loved watching the program. When I found out that the series was now on DVD. I purchased all the seasons.
I found Avonlea Christmas on this site at a very good price $9.99. I puchased it without a second thought.
I found the movie very enjoyable to watch. It is a clean family friendly movie with family values.
These days it is hard to find a movie that can actually be called a family movie.
I would recommend this DVD to anyone who loved watching Anne of Green Gables.
A rather disappointing reunion for the "Avonlea" cast  Jan 22, 2004
Think of having a "Friends" reunion with only four of the characters (your pick) and you get an idea of why fans of "Avonlea" (a.k.a. "Road to Avonlea") were less than thrilled with this 1998 television movie. The premise of "Happy Christmas, Miss King" is that the King family has gathered together during the First World War to celebrate Christmas, but word comes that Felix has been listed as missing in action in France. Other plot lines have Aunt Hetty (Jackie Burroughs) hurting her back, Aunt Olivia (Mag Ruffman) thinking of moving back to Avonlea, and Felicity (Gema Zamprogna) trying to find a new career. The problem is that which each of these last three plotlines each character is missing their key counterpart from the series: Sara Stanley, Jasper Dale, and Gus Pike respectively. The Story Girl and the two husbands appear in old footage, but that just emphasizes the fact that they should have been there.

The story is by Raymond Storey, although those who have read the entire Lucy Maud Montgomery canon will recognize the son missing in action bit from "Rilla of Ingleside," the last of the Anne of Green Gables books. In a sense, that novel becomes my basis for comparison as much as the original series, because that is the one book I have read that really gave me a sense for what the First World War was like for the people of Canada. The war went on for years before the United States entered and Montgomery really gave a sense of how long it was, whereas "Happy Christmas, Miss King" takes place during the holiday season. However, to be fair, this story is not as disappointing as the "Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story," which finds Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe still not married during the war years. Too bad, because "Rilla of Ingleside" was one of Montgomery's better novels because of its treatment of what happened during that time.

It was nice to see familiar faces, such as Cedric Smith as Alec King, and Patricia Hamilton as Mrs. Rachel Lynde, but if you are going to bring most of the cast back it should have been for something more special than this. Dealing with the war really should have been the dominant focus without the half-hearted efforts to get us up to date on some of the characters. Against the backdrop of a world war the petty marital squabbles of Olivia and Felicity seem rather childish. Besides, the television series ended with Felicity's marriage and it is just wrong to throw out that happy ending without serving some greater purpose than what we have here. "Happy Christmas, Miss King" will disappoint most viewers, simply because of the heightened expectations they will have based on their memories of the beloved series. Fans will want to see it, but they should do so with lowered expectations.

Heartwarming Avonlea Christmas Story  Dec 31, 2002
Note: This DVD is the same movie as the earlier released "Happy Christmas, Miss King".

I really enjoyed this movie. From what I remember, it was filmed and released after the Road to Avonlea series had finished filming its 7 seasons. The movie stays true to the Avonlea characters and scenery.

For one of the reasons that Kevin Sullivan stopped the filming of the charming RTA series... the Christmas movie shows the time of war. The boys of Avonlea (including Felix King) go to war and all the innocence of Avonlea is temporarily lost.

However, this is a Christmas movie, and 'The Road to Avonalea Christmas' depicts the Christmas theme with all the charm and detail that the Road to Avonlea series has brought us.

I would definitely add this DVD to your personal or child's collection.

Happy Christmas a return to old friends for the holidays  Nov 12, 2002
We enjoyed seeing the cast of Avonlea again, although there were so many changes from when we when we cancelled the Disney Channel and stopped getting the series, that some of it was difficult to follow or understand.
Still, the show was an excellent entry in the Avonlea saga, and we definately enjoyed it.
What I'd really like to see is season sets on DVD, then we can enjoy the entire series again.
A treasure for die-hard series fans!  Jun 7, 2000
Olivia visits from England with Montgomery donning an accent. Clara Potts now disdainingly refers to Felicity as "Felicity Pike!" Felix has put aside the hospitality business to fight in WWI. Daniel is a student of Hetty's and Hetty is exactly the same. How wonderful to follow up on an extended family I feel is an extention of my own!

Alright, so our beloved Jasper, Sarah, and Gus are absent (Sarah's not even mentioned), but still this irresistably charming vingette of a Christmas plagued with dissapointments satisfies the loyal viewer who dreamt of what occured after the series' end. I'm glad I own it to be able to revisit my fictional friends, and I think it's worth it to every fan who feels as I do.

The relationships between the characters take precedence in the movie, with Janet agonizing over Felix's MIA status, Olivia turning to Alec for tender brotherly support when Jasper forgets the especially important engagement of catching their boat to Avonlea, Felicity wishing Gus were with her as she tries to decide what to do with her life, and everyone, as always, annoyed with Hetty. For all its faults and loose ends, I still treasure this video as a window into the lives I've spent so much time watching over the years. To those who made it- thank you, and please send more!
