The two shows are very different. The first one, “Christmas in Plum Creek,” takes place when the Ingalls girls are very young. Money is tight, but everyone in the family is trying to think of ways in which they can afford to get the perfect present for each other. I won’t spoil the story by telling how each family member raises the money, but all of them, especially Laura, make sacrifices so they can bring a wonderful Christmas to the Ingalls household. In “A Christmas They Never Forgot,” Laura and Mary are both married and bring their spouses to the Ingalls household for Christmas. A snowstorm strands them, so they take turns sharing tales from Christmases past. It was especially interesting to see the tale that Almanzo Wilder (Laura’s husband) shares from his childhood considering that the real Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote a book about her husband’s growing-up years!
If you’re a fan of the original Little House on the Prairie series or want to share a wholesome and heartwarming show with your children or grandchildren, I suggest you pick up a copy of A Merry Ingalls Christmas. It’s been restored and remastered for superior picture and sound, and teaches wonderful lessons about family, history and love. This DVD would make a great stocking stuffer, too!
