A Special Time of Year

With the holidays in full swing, our family is enjoying a variety of activities that only this season brings. From the Advent celebration to the annual family Christmas gathering, these long-anticipated days are speeding by too quickly. Each year our tree remains up for another week, and so will our holiday light display. I’m sure you have your own customs, too.

Even though our kids are now grown, they still depend on our traditions (some we have acquired from our own childhoods and others we have added over the years) to make this season special. Obviously, it blesses us to see them incorporate these same traditions into their own celebrations with their growing families. Stringing holiday lights, baking homemade gifts, attending the Christmas Eve candlelight ceremony and preparing the traditional Christmas breakfast; they all have a very special place in our hearts. But there is another tradition we all enjoy, and that’s relaxing in front of a Christmas-themed movie…one that acknowledges the birth of Jesus Christ as the reason for the season and illustrates the impact His life has on those who receive Him as Savior.

This week, I hope you take time to check out the variety of Christmas movies available on Pure Flix Digital. With your kids still on their school break, it’s a perfect time to sign up for a free month of viewing! After all, you will find something for everyone, from the little ones who enjoy the animation of the popular VeggieTales’ “It’s A Meaningful Life” (our favorite vegetables take on the classic film, “It’s a Wonderful Life”) to the older ones who enjoy their own inspiring films with the hope of a happy ending, such as Max Lucado’s “Christmas Child or the streaming favorite “Christmas Angel” with Della Reese. Regardless of your personal preference, the message is clearly delivered. Though we might celebrate the holiday season with different traditions and customs, as Christians, we set aside this time with one common purpose: to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

So from our Pure Flix family to yours, we hope you experience the true joy of this Christmas season and many blessings for the New Year!
