    My 5 Favorite Family Friendly Movies that Reflect the Spirit of Christmas!

    There are a lot of great Christmas movies out there. “Elf,” “Christmas with the Kranks,” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” are just a few of the secular movies that are fun to watch.

    I’ve noticed, however, that there are not many Christmas movies that reflect the true meaning of Christmas. They do exist, but they’re few and far between.

    The following are five of my favorite inspirational Christmas movies. Enjoy!

    Christmas Angel (2009)

    This is a great faith-strengthening movie that reflects how adversity can be used in a positive way. The main character is bitter about the Christmas season because of past adversity, but her new boss, who also has experienced hardships, shows her how to be a positive influence. I don’t want to give too much away, but this is a feel-good movie that focuses on helping the less fortunate without expecting anything in return.

    The Christmas Choir (2008)

    “The Christmas Choir” is an inspiring movie that’s based on a true story. The main character begins volunteering at a homeless shelter, and after realizing that many of the homeless men can sing, he puts together a choir. The great part of this story is seeing how these men soon build confidence in themselves. Not only does the main character find something to believe in again, but also the homeless men go on to become successful and financially independent.

    The Polar Express (2004)

    Based on the book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, this movie tells the story of a young boy who struggles with his belief in Santa Claus. I believe that the story has a deeper Christian meaning, though. I see Santa, the conductor, and the hobo ghost as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I see the struggle to “believe in Santa” as a struggle of faith in God. I feel that there are many allegorical aspects in this movie that reflect Christianity. I don’t expect younger viewers to see this, but even they will enjoy this movie. What do you think?

    The Christmas Card (2006)

    What a great Christmas movie this is! It tells the story of a woman who sends Christmas cards to soldiers deployed in Afghanistan and one man who receives the card. He keeps the card close to him, and while on leave, he decides to find the woman who sent it. This is a wonderful Christmas movie for the whole family to enjoy.

    Christmas Child (2008)

    This is a lovely Christmas movie that tells the story of a man disconnected from everything, including his marriage. An old photograph leads him to a small town where he is immersed in the mystery of the missing baby Jesus in a life-sized town nativity scene. During his stay he meets a very family-oriented community, learns about his own past, and rediscovers his family.

    What do you think of my list? Do you have a favorite Christmas movie that you feel reflects the true spirit of Christmas?
