The Candlemaker (cartoon)

1957 film by John Halas

The Candlemaker is a 1957 Cathedral Films animated short film about a candlemaker and his son at Christmas time.


  • Many years ago, before there were any automobiles and before we had electricity or even gas lighting and when people used horses if they wanted to go out for a ride and oil lamps and candles if they needed a light, there lived in a small country town, yes, a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick-maker. With just over a week to go before Christmas, the townspeople were busy indeed and none more so than the candlemaker and his young son, Tom.
  • And so it was, many years ago, that the candlemaker's son learned the meaning of Christian stewardship, just as we must learn it today.
