Movies are not the “true meaning of Christmas”–of course God sending Jesus to be our Savior is–but many Americans associate certain films with the now commercialized holiday. Christians have no problem with Christmas flicks, as long as we don’t get distracted from the importance of Jesus. I have a few timeless classics that are my favorites at this time of the year:
- The Family Man (2000)
- It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)
- A Christmas Story (1983)
- Elf (2003)
I hope you get to watch them all this Christmas! God’s blessing to you and your family!
P.S. My favorite Christmas TV special is A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965). It is 25 minutes and is awesome!
