It's closing in on Thanksgiving, and then all of the hustle and bustle of Christmas will start (in many places it's started already). One thing we love to do this time of year is watch holiday movies. We have our classic favorites like the Grinch and we always love Veggie Tales. Something fairly new to us, though it's not really new to many, is the Holiday Stories Collection
Bob and Larry are preparing for their first Christmas show in Mr. Nezzer's theater and the show seems to be headed for disaster. Bob begins to wonder how to celebrate Christmas when everything is going wrong. It's when the Veggies go back to the very first Christmas, where times were tough and things didn't seem to be working out, that they all learn the promise of Christmas - God is with us. It's a timeless story of hope that every family will enjoy!
The DreamWorks Holiday Collection is the one that is not new, but is new to me. It takes our favorite characters and puts together a few short movies with them in it, all with a holiday theme. I can't wait to watch the Trolls Holiday (I hope it has some awesome music in it like their movie did) and Donkey's Caroling Christmas-tacular. My son is excited to see the Madagascar shows. I suspect we are going to enjoy all of them though.

Our family enjoys viewing The Grinch. I have watched it with all four of my children when they were little and still at home, every single Christmas season. It doesn't matter what version is on, we just love it. This one by Illumination, however, is our favorite. My youngest, who is still at home, went with me to the movies last year to see it and it was awesome. It was great to see it on the big screen with a tub of popcorn and a couple of sodas. Even better since our local movie theater has installed leather recliners.
Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!
