Disclosure: As a VeggieTales Blogger I received the Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas DVD free of charge to facilitate my review. My opinions are my own and those of my family.
Christmas is quickly approaching, and it’s easy to get caught up in all the goings on of the holidays. I don’t know about you, but I was surprised to see Christmas decorations out already! It seems to come earlier and earlier! I know I have also been caught up as well! It’s been very busy the past couple of weeks trying to keep up with sharing all the holiday cheer and product recommendations.
Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas is just that! They are trying to make Spring Valley Mall the most spectacular mall for the Christmas season, and they’re going BIG! Bob is in charge of making it the best display yet, and he has gotten MANY lights, a train, and so much more. There was only one problem – the mall’s permanent elf. When “Merry Larry” meets a little girl with a big heart he is touched and goes out of his way to find her again and help her in her goal to give her neighbor a new house.
Imagine Bob’s surprise when they go to show their amazing display to the “big wig,” and it’s ALL GONE. All there is left is a Nativity in the closet, which brings back fond memories for him as well. Those memories remind him what Christmas is all about. I don’t want to spoil the whole story, but let’s just say the lights disappeared for a good cause, and it has a very happy ending!
As always VeggieTales delivers a wonderful and important message. Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas really is a great reminder of what Christmas is all about. It’s not about the decorations, the lights, or even the shopping. It’s about our Savior and how much God gave us, and how much we can give to others. It delivers the message in a way that is both entertaining and easily understood.
Christmas shines most bright and true when you give the love God gave to you!
Do you know what else is unique about Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas? It is narrated by Si Robertson from Duck Commander! How fun is that? The kids don’t really know who he is as much as my husband and I do as we are fans, but they enjoyed Silas the Okra! The DVD also includes Behind the Scenes with Si Robertson, some fun singalongs, and a new song from Owl City featuring TobyMac!
If you are looking for a Christmas movie that your kids will enjoy that also conveys an important message about what Christmas is really about I would definitely recommend Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas. Our kids really enjoyed it and even discussed the true meaning of Christmas with each other as well! I love those moments!
