Do your children know what Christmas is REALLY all about? Do they know what hanging stockings, cutting down Christmas trees, and Santa Claus have anything to do with Jesus birth? Well I have the perfect video to share with you, it will teach you children the real meaning of Christmas and the significance of all the Christmas symbols! From Phil Vischer creator of Veggie Tales with inspired newsman Buck Denver and all his friends, Buck Denver asks Why Do We Call It Christmas?
We were given a copy of this video to review and let me tell you, we have all loved it! I have never seen a more complete and wonderful way for children to learn the TRUE and full meaning of Christmas all in one spot! Not only do they teach children the meaning of Christmas and all the symbols we see at Christmas time but they use Buck Denver and his friends to make it entertaining for kids.
In this video kids are taken on an adventure as Buck Denver plans a Christmas Party inviting some of his friends, some of his friends struggle getting to the party. During their adventures to the party they start questioning some of the Christmas symbols and different characters have the answer as to what it has to do with Jesus Birth and Christmas of course while running into some funny situations to make it very entertaining for kids. Through out the video Phil Vischer gets on and talks to the kids about different things happening in the movie, at the end he even humbles himself by telling the kids he is not perfect and that he is so grateful for God sending his son to all of us so we can be forgiven of our sins! I have never seen something quite like this the creator of a video showing kids even he falls short of the glory of God, simply amazing!
My older boys have been quoting sections from the video and were laughing on and off the whole video! The 2 younger boys have really loved snuggling up with me and watching the video together! Even Serena told me she liked the video and said it was funny.. WOW, anyone who has or has had a 14 year old teenage daughter knows how difficult it is to find anything that they like 😉
Now anyone who really knows us knows that I am very strict about what my children are exposed to both on the television and on the computers we do not even have cable because of all the inappropriate exposures cable adds to the house. The kids are also limited to how much time they can spend watching these videos and playing the educational games on the computers and they can only use that time after their school and chores for the day are completed. The Buck Denver series is one that I am so very excited about, and am glad to be adding to our video library, finding appropriate videos that I enjoy letting my children watch are not always easy!
