Veggie Tales Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving

Veggie Tales and Big Idea, Inc. have released a new Christmas video: Saint Nicholas: A Story Of Joyful Giving (October 6th). It has been seven years since Veggie Tales have had a Holiday DVD.
Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving is another great Veggie DVD, packed with humor and fun. This movie goes into detail about the original origins of "Santa Claus," and how we give because Jesus gave to us.
Nicky the Pepper starts out as a young child. He is not too happy about them giving to others, and he decides to leave home. Through adventures with his cohort, played by Mr. Lunt, they realize that their village was taken over by a cruel man who outlaws giving. In disguises the two continue to give to the poor. Bonus new silly song included: Donuts for Benny.
I love how the Veggie Tales movies/shorts have great learning messages for kids and adults alike. Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving teaches that giving is more important than receiving, and what the real meaning of Christmas is.
Big Idea is involved in several giving opportunities this Christmas season, so they are doing what they promote. Everyone who purchases the Saint Nicholas DVD will receive a FREE VeggieTales DVD to give to a friend in need! Through this offer inside the DVD, you can log into a special website and select the free VeggieTales DVD that you would like to send to a friend with only $2.99 shipping and handling. Big Idea has also teamed up with Operation Christmas Child to help collect gifts for needy children throughout the world.
Bonus features of Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving, include an original new song by critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Matthew West, “Give This Christmas Away,” performed by West and Grammy Award-winning artist Amy Grant. There is also a special Operation Christmas Child video.

I think this DVD is superb and a great show to watch with your kids! This would make a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer.
This review was sponsored by Family Review Network & Big Idea. They have supplied me with a DVD to review to share with my readers, for my personal opinion. I was not compensated for my time or written review.

We rented this one from Coborn's last weekend. It's pretty cute. I'm going to have to add it to my collection too. For some reason, Big Idea has quit sending them out to their ambassadors anymore. I think they kinda quit the program all together.
