I am a sucker for a good Christmas movie. I get excited at this time of year, because the stores always have a bunch of new Christmas movies out. We like to add at least one new one (sometimes two or three) to our collection each year. But, it’s so hard to know which movies are good ones. When you’re just looking at the display at your local Wal-mart and Target, how do you know which movies are really Christmas treasures and which ones are flops?
Honestly, we haven’t really figured out the answer to that question. We’ve taken our chances; and, for the most part, we’ve gotten lucky. But, there has been the occasional “why did we buy this?” movie. I was recently given the opportunity to review a wonderful Christmas movie . . .
Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people. During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does. Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the Christmas Lodge.
We watched this movie together as a family and we all really enjoyed it. It’s a heartwarming story with a great cast of characters. We had previously seen and enjoyed Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas Cottage, which was also a great Christmas movie.
If you are like us, and are looking for a good Christmas movie to add to your collection, I’d recommend Christmas Lodge. You can view the trailer here.
