    The movie this comes from—“A Castle Christmas”, aka, “A Victorian Christmas in Song”—is wonderful. It is a yearly must-watch in our home, along with a traditional high tea.

      I’ll look for it. My mother and I went to high tea at the Empress Hotel in Banff. Doesn’t look like a castle, but high tea was divine. Rooms are just under $1000 a night, so we did not stay in the hotel, but I could stay in the lobby and on the porches and grounds all day and pretend.

        Very pricey if you can find it. We just bought a DVD version for $90, but our VHS tapes were getting so worn out after dozens of years! Full disclosure: we watch this along with “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”, while we stuff ourselves with tea, cheese and crackers, little sandwiches, cottage cheese, fresh fruit, and more tea.

    I will have to look for it, too. I don’t remember ever seeing it.
