that focuses on something other than getting gifts. Like the real meaning of Christmas (I'll take any interpretations of that, lol, as long as it's not focused on getting gifts!) or something about giving, or doing kind things for others, whatever. I need it for me son, who is 5. Any ideas?

I figure when he says he loves Christmas "because he likes to get more gifts than anyone else" it is time to intervene. For the record, dh and I only get him 1 gift...it's the grandparents that go (lovingly) nuts. :

he may not be quite old enough, but i firmly believe there is an important reason that people watch "it's a wonderful life" year after year: people show love for one another in tangible ways.

i am also a huge fan of "white christmas" with bing crosby. bing and his friend make an old friend feel appreciated and loved.

if only your son were a bit older! sorry i can't be more helpful. i'll have to keep thinking. good luck!

Veggietales "The Toy That Saved Christmas" and "The Star of Christmas" are both Christ-centered Christmas movies. "The Toy that Saved Christmas" is about a toy who gets the word out that Christmas isn't about getting toys. They are both really fun movies that my 3, 5 and 7 year old all enjoy.

"The Muppet's Christmas Carol" is another great kids' Christmas movie - same story as Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"

"Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas" - I haven't seen it in ages, but it's about giving, working together, and the importance of family.

"Small One" - about a boy and his donkey

"The Polar Express" - based on the children's book

HTH!
