Every Christmas season I remember watching holiday classic movies as a family. Year after year the list of movies would always include A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone, Jingle All the Way, Santa Claus, Very Brady Christmas, Christmas with the Kranks, The Christmas Shoes and other Christmas-themed movies.
The Christmas Shoes is a movie that was originally a song. The song later became a book and a film. The story has several plots all linked together: It is about a workaholic lawyer, Robert, and how he neglected his responsibility as a husband and a father. Robert, not really in the Christmas mood, meets Nathan at a cash register where the little boy is in a hurry to buy a pair of red Christmas shoes for his mom to wear when she meets Jesus in heaven on Christmas Eve. She had been sick for quite a while and he wanted to make his mom smile. Robert is finally reminded of what Christmas is all about when he meets Nathan, who has the Christmas spirit and the love towards family that Robert lacks. Click on The Christmas Shoes to watch the song about the scene that changes Robert forever.
It is nice to create a Christmas tradition with your family.
