Every year television networks flood the airways with holiday movies. We can count on unlimited access to the majority of our Christmas favorites and we do so for good reason. Seeing these classics make us feel good—at a time when the entire country can use a “spirit boost”! I hesitate to guess how many times some of these wonderful “jewels” have been shown … A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life and so many others which never seem to grow old.
The same holds true for certain stories which make us feel good about the season, our loved ones, and ourselves. A good story never grows old, and that’s why we’re repeating this one again this year. It’s a story about a little boy who is obviously wise beyond his years. He receives a tremendous gift by giving joy and happiness to his best friend. This is a short Christmas story that should be shared with your children and/or grandchildren during this joyous season. You’ll all feel better after doing so.
Read the story together and then discuss the true Spirit of Christmas.
