Whether the movies include real people or animated characters – I love them. Whether they are in black and white, or fully colorized, I love them. Whether they are old or new – I love Christmas flicks!
I always get a twinge of excitement about plopping onto the couch, popping some popcorn, grabbing some hot cocoa, and snuggling with the kids, as we fall back in time and watch the same Christmas movies that we have watched dozens, if not hundreds, of times before.
I thought it would be so fun to reminisce about some of my favorite Christmas classics, and yours, and talk about the life lessons we can pull from them.
So for the next few weeks, I am going to focus on the reel (as in movie reel) side of Christmas, so that we can gleam some real spiritual truths.
Believe it or not, from Rudolphs red nose to the Grinches green face to Its a Wonderful Life – there are some important reel truths that line up with Gods Word and biblical significance.
Even though most movies are primarily meant for simply holiday entertainment, I have discovered that if we dig deep, we can find some great nuggets of truth to take to heart.
Before we kick off this holiday movie series on Friday, I would love to know what some of your favorite classic movies are!
Which holiday movies or cartoons bring back the fondest memories for you?
Which ones have life lessons that impacted your heart over time or as a child?
Which ones have impacted your family in years gone by, or changed your perspective about Christmas?
Come on now, be reel!
