First time I really saw the "wall" on the side of the room across from the fireplace. And you can see the writing on the box, must have moved the table for this shot. It says Do not open till Christmas/deliver to Mrs Ingalls
I wish I could find Carrie's face when she says "Happy Birthday Baby Jesus", she was at her most "adorable" and it ended the show very nicely.

Do my "early morning" eyes deceive me or in this pic, posted on this thread, have what looks like a store bought shirt in plastic on the table?

I've blown that section up and that is what I see...not sure about what's on top of it. I know Mary didn't really make the shirt, but I wonder if that is a blooper, not shown maybe on the show, but in still pics.

Exact Moment of "Happy Birthday Baby Jesus"

Charles loved Christmas!

I always found it to be a little odd that there are some plastered walls in the house, but, plastering dates back to the Egyptian times before Christ, so it is entirely possible that they would have used plaster.Had to insulate with something!

Your eyes are deceiving you, that is Pa's violin case on the table, not a shirt..and it is shown on the show

LOL, now that I have coffee and my glasses, I see that.

Thanks for the pics, Carrie was actually was more vocal and sweet in the earlier shows and it was always just the right thing to do or say.

Re the plaster, I noticed some walls were done and some half done, etc. but in other homes, they didn't have any. It would seem to help keep the wind out, just the logs would be very cold.

I loved this episode, I didn't like Laura giving Bunny to Nellie but it made for a couple of more stories. It was nice to see everyone well, happy and full of secrets and joy.

Michael From An Interview About Christmas......The Fireplace....Carrie had The Same Thought!

"Christmas Eve is a time I hold dear in my heart. I particularly cherish the night that Shawna and Christopher looked disturbed when my wife Lynn and I sent them off to bed. When I asked them what was wrong, they both told me it was because there was a fire in the fireplace. 'Santa will get burned when he comes down the chimney,' they blurted out. I hugged them both close to me and had to fight back the tears that struggled to come from my eyes. I promised them I would go right to the fireplace and put out the fire so Santa wouldn't be hurt when he arrived. And that's exactly what I did." Michael Landon.

A lot of children do that...my mom said he would come in the door. : ) My sister said he was magic like Charles and wouldn't get burnt.

I loved his Christmas Kodak commercials back then too. Too bad things had to end the way they did.

Very good episode.

I liked it when Charles got a green scarf and said. 'that's my favourite colour'.

It was his favourite colour in real life and, of course, he wore that green jacket in Bonanza for years.

A great and classic Christmas episode! I love how everyone was busy thinking of others, and not just themselves. Laura gave up something she really loved in order to be able to buy the stove for her mom for Christmas. It would have helped, though, if they had talked together about what they were getting others in the family... then Charles and Laura, and Caroline and Mary wouldn't have been giving the same things! I thought it was really funny when Charles wanted to buy the stove, and Nels knew that Laura had already bought it. He tried convincing Charles to get something else, but Charles only wanted that stove!

Did anyone else notice that all of the trees are full of leaves? HeeHee

Yes, it was never really winter in Walnut Grove. : ) They used to complain how hot they would get in winter clothes, I probably would have fainted or wilted. One show, can't remember which one, someone had big wet stains under her arms when it was supposed to be cold, no "clinical strength" antiperspirant back then. Smile

One of my wishes for LHOP was that there were more Xmas shows, happy ones. And Easter was never discussed, but they did Halloween....Thanksgiving?

Right, an Easter themed episode would have been nice. I wish we could purchase / see the thanksgiving one..

The Christmas movie, Bless All The Dear Children, which started with saying how mild the Winter was, was actually filmed in June 1983 - people walking around Mankato in short sleeves :)

Yeah, I think it would have been impossible to make the show - it would have cost way too much - if they had actually filmed in Minnesota.

Kent McCray took Michael Landon down to Patagonia, Arizona before they shot the pilot, and suggested it for the Walnut Grove exteriors, that they eventually shot in Simi Valley, Ca. The terrain was Minnesota like, but there was only one problem! Too much Cactus!

It's strange, but when I watched the original run and was aged 10 or so, I always thought it was set in Kansas, Missouri or Nebraska - somewhere like that.

I've always been a geography fan but didn't realise at the time it was Minnesota.

It was clever how they mixed in the Northern California shots to give it that Minnesota feel.

That's perfectly understandable. When I hear the word "prairie," I'm much more apt to think of the states you mentioned rather than Minnesota.
