Saving Christmas - Review and Giveaway

It seems like every Christmas there is a debate over the validity over what people choose to incorporate as part of their Christmas celebrations. Some people don't like anything but nativity and others pull out all the stops with Christmas trees, Santa Claus and everything under the sun. But how has Christmas gotten so twisted with so many divisions over what should and shouldn't be allowed, are the Christmas Trees and Santa Claus really pagan symbols? What about Jesus, isn't He being lost in all the commercialism, in all the buying of presents? You might just be surprised if you're one of the many who believed that there are some things that should be omitted from your Christmas celebration besides the words Merry Christmas.

Kirk Cameron decided to dig deep into the origins of Santa Claus, the Christmas Tree and many of the other decorations we put up as part of our Christmas celebrations. It seems lately the joy is been completely taken out of Christmas and instead leaving us even more divided on the issue than ever before. In his movie Saving Christmas that is in select theaters on November 14th, Kirk finds himself at his sister Bridgett's Christmas party. Everyone is in the full spirit of celebrating except for her husband Christian. Christian has excluded himself from the celebration because he firmly believes that all this Christmas stuff has put Jesus on the back seat while all these pagan symbols are being worshiped instead. He struggles to find out where any of these are in the Bible. Kirk firmly takes the time to explain how the Nativity is more than what any of us considered. From the manger itself to the symbolism of Jesus' birth and what was happening in the world at that time. What the significance of the swaddling clothes Jesus was wrapped in and how will they make a return appearance later in his life?

This is such an impactful movie not only in the way it tackles all the hard issues like pagan symbols or religious symbols? Where can we find why we celebrate on December 25th, and just how God has impacted this time of the year to celebrate? How we can realize that all the stuff we celebrate is really pointing to Jesus, even Santa Claus? My family and I had the honor to watch this exclusively before it aired in theaters thanks to Provident Films and Propeller LLC for my honest review, and we all honestly loved it. Now we have a more firm foundation of explaining things to those who would try and take the fun and joy out of the Christmas celebrations. It has given us new life to our Christmas celebrations again and now I am so super excited to feel free to celebrate the way we have as we grew up without having to justify anything. This is such a sweet, funny and definitely learning experience for the entire family. It is wonderful to see Kirk Cameron provide just what so many believers and non believers have been waiting for.

I received my invitation to review Saving Christmas compliments of Provident Films, CamFam, and Propeller LLC for my honest review and did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review. This is such an educational and fun family film for the entire family. The origins of so many of our Christmas favorites are explained in this incredible film. The movie will be in select theaters beginning November 14th for a limited engagement of only two weeks, so you don't want to miss this one. I easily rate this movie a 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can add this one to my must watch Christmas movie collection. I think watching it before Christmas is perfect to get you into the right Spirit for the reason for the season! And it's all about Jesus!
