VeggieTales the Ultimate Christmas Collection - I'm Giving One Away!

Christmas is only 68 days away . . . if you are looking for something which you could use with the children in your ministry to help them understand who "Santa" really was, consider the VeggieTales Ultimate Christmas Collection as it includes the Veggie story of Saint Nicholas: a Story of Joyful Giving!

As I've been saying, for the past several years VeggieTales has released Christmas stories . . . some of which have become my favorite Veggie stories! This year they have put together a "Veggie Christmas Marathon!" This VeggieTales Ultimate Christmas Collection features the entire Veggie Christmas collection, you'll find on two DVDs, It's a Meaningful Life, Saint Nicholas: a Story of Joyful Giving, The Star of Christmas, The Little Drummer Boy, The Toy that Saved Christmas, Christmas Singalong Songs DVD and 25 Favorite Christmas Songs CD!

So, today let's take a closer look at Saint Nicholas: a Story of Joyful Giving! 
This Veggie story covers timely issues with care, such as families losing their jobs and being in need of other's "joyful giving". It has a strong messages about the true meaning of Christmas, the true story of Saint Nicholas and how children - and families - can "give this Christmas away" by helping those in need! 
In this veggie story, children - and parents and grandparents - have the opportunity to hear about Saint Nicholas and why he is part of Christmas to this day. Children will be introduced to a new Veggie Character - Nicky the Pepper - and they are sure to enjoy the new silly song - Donuts for Benny!

This new Veggie movie has a lot to offer and gives families much to talk about - particularly about giving and praying for those in need who you know and who you do not know! Excellent new song - "Give This Christmas Away" is certain to become a favorite. I especially appreciate the emphasis on giving to others and helping others! My child reviewers liked how the Veggie Characters ended up helping their friend! 

Not only did Veggies send me the Ultimate Christmas Collection for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)!
