Young Pioneers' Christmas is a made for television Christmas movie, released in 1976, loosely based on the novel Young Pioneers by Rose Wilder Lane.

It follows The Young Pioneers television series and is followed by another movie, entitled Young Pioneers.


A young couple, Molly and David Beaton, and their neighbors celebrate Christmas in 1874 on the Dakota prairie. Despite tragedy and an ongoing battle with the Railway company, Christmas is a homespun and overly sentimental affair.
