I admit, I throw a wet blanket on Christmas every single year.
I complain about the commercialism, materialism, and the let’s-spend-until-we’re-broke-ism mentality. Not to mention Christmas trees, cards, lights, toys…all out on display before Halloween arrives? Christmas had been hijacked by retail stores!
I wanted to be surrounded by reminders of the real meaning and joy of Christmas. But I had given up hope on that many seasons ago.
UNTIL…I saw a movie trailer for Kirk Cameron’s new “Saving Christmas” movie. There was a scene of this guy with the same attitude I had and Kirk Cameron tells him that everything that he was seeing around him was all about Jesus. I wondered how he was going to explain that.
No spoiler alerts here — I will just say that I was expecting just a cheesy sort of fun movie that hubby and I could watch together — but the movie completely exceeded my expectations! As we were walking toward the movie theater, I said to him “maybe this will help me with my attitude”. And boy, did it!
I am so glad that I saw this movie. I never thought that I would be able to experience Christmas the way I wanted to, but this movie turned it around. I was so giddy afterwards and now have a child-like anticipation for this Christmas season. So thankful!
Do you have the same attitude I had? Check out this trailer — then check out the movie. Only in theaters for another week or so!
