Saving Christmas provides a refreshing look at the meaning of the holiday


Saving Christmas is a traditional, heartfelt Christmas movie geared towards Christian families. Kirk Cameron starts off the movie with a monologue explaining how the morals of Christmas have been lost in today’s time. The movie explores methods on how adults can regain the joy, meaning and the purpose of Christmas.

Kirk is enjoying the annual Christmas party extravaganza thrown by his sister until he realizes he needs to help out Christian, his brother-in-law who has a bad case of the bah-humbugs. Kirk’s fresh look at Christmas provides Christian the chance to see Christ is where He has always been: at the center of our Christmas celebrations and traditions.

Despite complaints by some viewers that the movie was poorly made, typical and predictable, it provides a refreshing view of how to keep the meaning of Christmas without sacrificing the fun parts. Although Saving Christmas is not a big Hollywood production by any means, and could get a little preachy at times, it was a great family movie that leaves viewers trying to find ways to make Jesus the reason of the Christmas season. Equipped with the right dose of humor and seriousness, it is a good movie to see during the Christmas season.
