Do you love the Holidays? Can you hardly wait for the baking, presents, christmas tree and Santa Claus photos? What about those who say it is too commercialized? What about those who try to boycott Christmas because they say it has lost its meaning? No matter what side of the Christmas excitement spectrum you fall on, Saving Christmas is a must see for you!
The Teleconference with Kirk Cameron
Last week I was able to be a part of a Teleconference with Kirk Cameron. As a Blogger, I was able to ask a question and my question to him was, “How would you describe the meaning of Christmas to the younger, present-eager child?” I asked this because I have that present-eager 6 year old and was curious about his answer to this.
His answer to my question was that he loves referring to Charlie Brown Christmas (the movie) because it takes the cartoon character that all kids love and know and they go on the journey as Charlie Brown is searching for the meaning of Christmas. He also added that kids can be told the sacrifices of buying gifts such as money and limits and how hard everyone works to buy the gifts they get. They can learn the difference about gifts they need and gifts they want. These are all great as I take this year to really stress the meaning of Christmas with my 6 year old son.
Saving Christmas: Movie Review
I learned so much in this movie in a way that opened my eyes to what I though I knew. I grew up Catholic and even attended Catholic school from grades 1-9. During the holidays we would perform Christmas Pageants and learn holy songs and versus, but I never saw the real meaning behind traditions until watching Saving Christmas. You may think that I am too near sided to take one movie and change my view, but with a general knowledge of the stories of the bible, it all makes sense and it fits. They are just simply observations of the bible as if the words were acted out on stage and unedited. It is not an opinion, it is a different view.
In Saving Christmas you will learn the real story about the manger and the swaddling cloth. Do you have a Nativity Set you bring out at Christmas? You will forever view this one ‘decoration’ in a whole new way after seeing the movie. What bout the meaning of the Christmas Tree and the presents beneath it? What about Santa Claus? What you get by watching saving Christmas is a new way to view the festivities surrounding this special day and how they are all linked to the real meaning behind the holiday. It is not about being right or wrong, but about enjoying the Holidays with new eyes. The movie ends with this: “Once your eyes have been opened, there is no going back”.
Do not miss this movie-it is only in theaters for 2 weeks!
