The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, and the Post Office is bombarded with letters to Santa. Tiny tots’ eyes are all a-glow, and somewhere, someone is trying to roast nuts over an open flame. The holiday season has arrived, but doesn’t it seem like it has been here for a few months already? Families enjoy their own list of top Christmas movies, but by October, many families have already made their way to the end of their lists. Each year, the department stores start peddling their holiday decor earlier and earlier, as early as September in some places. The holiday season seems to last so long that it is hard to keep the magic running throughout its term.
At its core, the holiday season reminds society that we need to end the year focused on what truly matters: family, relationships, and serving others, at least, that’s the underlying theme of the top Christmas movies of this last century (It’s A Wonderful Life, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and Love Actually, to name a few).
Do the movies we enjoy as a family have to be about Christmastime, though? Are there movies out there that will help us focus on the main themes of the holiday season without bombarding us with saccharine speeches in the airport terminal, or front porch lovers under the guise of carol singers? Can’t we enjoy the goodness of the holiday season without all of the “extra”?
