This is a very informative video. But, it's also fun! I learned so much and am glad to have this so my children will understand where a lot of traditions come from. Plus, this video gives the history of St. Nick w/o choosing sides. Santa or no Santa.
Showed it for a group K-5th grade. Asked the kids after and they rated it 8 of 10. My experience was it is best for 3rd and 4th graders. Was 45 minutes. After 30 minutes some kids began to get restless. It covered Christmas history questions such as why Dec 25th, about Santa, stockings, gifts, tree, and others. Included some other country cultures/traditions. Clearly explained need to trust the Christ Child for salvation. Was nice that it included a website to download pictures of the story that kids could color plus some discussion questions/hints to reinforce learning. Good value, but perhaps a little long for some.
I thought this would be a great addition to the rest of our collection ("What's in the Bible) and I'm glad we got it. We also got another one to send to our grandson. The video was very entertaining and offered explanations for cherished Christmas traditions without pushing an agenda for or against those traditions. Was pleasantly surprised that we received these DVDs free from CBD!
