“Magic Silver”(2009): Norwegian Holiday Fantasy for Kids of all Kinds
Princess Fjellrose (Bluerose) is a young gnome girl living high in the Norwegian mountains. Her small community of blue gnomes is responsible for making the transition between daylight and night. Known as “The Magic Hour”, the change occurs only with the Magic Silver, which these gnomes possess exclusively and protect closely.
Now in all candor, Children's Holiday Film fare is not my typical cup o’ nog. Nothing wrong with the genre certainly. Just doesn't serve to stuff my stocking if ya know what I’m sayin’.
Which brings us niftily to the Norwegian family Christmas flick “Magic Silver”. Again, not a production I have a pressing preference to peruse. But pray tell? Not only is this effort more than tolerable, it is downright darned delightful.
Can I get a “Ho! Ho! Ho!” from the congregation?!

As with most children's tales, there is a lasting lesson to be harvested in “Magic Silver”. And hardly is it a message intended intrinsically for kids.
“When you take away, you must always give back” is the timed-honored tenant of the blue gnome family. And, as showcased in vivid and entertaining fashion in this story, though it’s not always easy, it is everlastingly rewarding.
Oh, okay, just this one more thing...
May Sesongens magi be yours.
