Guys!! Only 1 MORE WEEK TILL CHRISTMAS!!! ARE YOU JOKING?!
Anyways, I can’t believe we have got to Fun Friday Four #18! 18?!?

Samantha – An American girl holiday
This is such a beautiful christmassy movie!! And it’s on Youtube! And guess what? The lead character, Samantha, is played by AnnaSophia Robb,
who played Violet in ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ (check more about here),
Bethany in ‘Soul Surfer’ (check out that movie here)
and Opal in ‘Because of Winn-Dixie’ (learn more about that movie over here);
which are three other movies I just LOVE!! She’s an amazing actress!
Anyways, it’s about girl named Samantha, who lives with her grandmother, “Grandmary”, in a beautiful wealthy place, New York, in 1904. But Samantha is lonely. Then, a poor girl named Nellie, a maid, about Samantha’s age, moves into the house next-door with her father and two younger sisters named Bridget and Jenny. Samantha, despite being rich, is an unspoiled, kind girl. She soon becomes best friends with Nellie, teaching her to read and sharing Nellie’s household tasks such as carpet beating, darning, and other small jobs.
Soon, Samantha’s favoirite person, Uncle Gardner, pays a visit with his surprise- his new fiancé Cornelia. Uncle Gard announces that he and Cornelia are engaged. Samantha is unhappy by this turn of events but agrees to be the bridesmaid for the wedding. Soon after, Samantha moves to New York to attend a new school.
After Nellie’s father dies, she and her little sisters Bridget and Jenny are sent to a terrible orphanage run by a thieving matron. Samantha cleverly rescues the girls and hides them at home. Nellie secretly takes a job in a factory to support her little sisters. Samantha goes to find her, and witnesses the horrible conditions and cruelty in the factory. She bravely speaks out against the cruelty of child labor at her school.
Eventually, Samantha’s Uncle Gard and his new wife Cornelia adopt the orphan sisters, on Christmas. The last scenes are so beautiful! The christmas love and Samantha become sisters with Nellie!
