The Christmas Dress DVD ~ A short film that captures the spirit of Christmas.

The Christmas Dress

It's Christmas Eve, and Leland Jeppson's hope is gone. Struggling to get by in their rustic homestead, he had at least wanted to give his family a special Christmas. But with a blizzard blowing in and the train bearing their gifts nowhere in sight, it seems Christmas is just one more thing they'll have to do without. But as dusk falls, the Jeppsons' packages unexpectedly arrive at the post office in the not-so-nearby town. Half-blinded postman George Schow is hesitant to brave the storm, but his son, Sidney, will stop at nothing to bring Christmas to the Jeppsons—and ask their daughter, Ellen, to the New Year's Eve dance. Now it's up to father and son to battle fierce elements in an attempt to deliver a Christmas miracle. Don't miss this heartwarming reminder that while God helps those who help themselves, sometimes He does so through others.

My thoughts:  For me Christmas is a time to remember the goodness of men and of God.  It is a time to reflect on blessings.

This story reflects the struggle that many people have at Christmas time, a struggle to give their family a little extra, not just the things they need.  The story is set during the 1920's.  The Jeppson's have just fed their children all of the food they had, carrots.  They literally have nothing for Christmas, but a roof over their heads.  They need a miracle.

I loved the message of good will in the story.  The Jeppson family have many who are trying to help them have a meaningful Christmas.  The children in the movie show faith and trust as they pray that Santa will find them.  The way the story comes together is heartwarming.

This is a great way to spend less than 30 minutes.  It is a reminder of the the many miracles that happen at Christmas time.
