Christmas is my favorite time of year! My family loves to curl up on the couch and watch the family friendly Holiday Specials. There are so few that are aimed at the younger generation, but I know that I have a marathons worth with Veggie Tales: The Ultimate Christmas Collection. It is full of great stories with the true meaning of Christmas.
I found each video to have its own meaningful story and I found even myself, as an adult, feeling a connection with each one. The videos brought unique stories to my daughter and helped me to show her a different side to Christmas. One where it is more about the giving and less about the getting. At such a young age it is something you can struggle with, though my daughter has been buying a toy every year to give to a child in need.
A brief overview of each video:
It’s a Meaningful Life– Larry the Cucumber has a chance to go back into the past to have things how he always wanted. Do you think he will find happiness?
Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving– Laura Carrot’s Christmas may be sparse this year as her Dad could possibly lose his job. Bob the Tomato tells a story about a little boy named Nicholas who found something in Bethlehem. How could this help Laura?
The Star of Christmas– Bob and Larry are planning the biggest Christmas Musical London has ever seen. One small snag is that the Church will be having their Christmas Pageant on the same night. Which one will people show up to see?
The Little Drummer Boy– Junior Asparagus, as The Little Drummer Boy, Sad and lonely boy who finds the meaning of Christmas when he see baby Jesus.
The Toy that Saved Christmas– Wally P. Nezzer convinces the town of Dinkleburg that Christmas is all about getting stuff. This causes all the Children in town to beg for more and more toys. One little toy is brave enough to take matters into his own hands.
Inside this Ultimate Christmas Collection you will also find a CD with 25 Christmas Songs, to listen to as you decorate the tree or unwrapping presents. This is a set of movies my family will never grow out of and hope we can keep them as a tradition for years to come.
