Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving (DVD)
I'm a sucker for Christmas specials. That's one thing that hasn't left me since I was a kid. I'm more biased towards the traditional ones (i.e. Rudolph, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, etc) since that's what I grew up watching. Recently I just checked out the latest from the VeggieTales catalog titled Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving. With the trademark quirky humor that comes with most Big Idea productions, this holiday special tells the story of Saint Nicholas, the world’s greatest giver. It is a fun look at the origins of St. Nick, and one that is worth watching during the holidays. Although the music annoyed me at times, overall it is an entertaining show to watch with the family.
