The kids and I sat down to watch this together. It had so many great teaching opportunities. The beginning with the boy in the van had us cracking up. I had neglected to tell them the story of Saint Nicholas and they really were interested in that and asked me lots of questions. It made me rethink how we might do our stockings this year too. The puppets were very entertaining and did keep us interested and laughing.
The Christmas Tree story was very interesting too - I learned several things that I did not know. This DVD did a great job telling the stories of the traditions behind Christmas. In my opinion, this is a great way to start off the Christmas season. I would buy this and watch it early in December and watch it every year to remind us why we do what we do and why we celebrate the way we do.
