While shopping at the store with the family this week, we went down an aisle with all of the Christmas candy. My daughter said, “Oh, my favorite aisle!” As we looked at all the fun candy, my daughter surprised me by saying, “Mommy, do you know what Christmas is really about?”
She proceeded to tell me that Christmas wasn’t about candy, gifts and lights but about sharing and baby Jesus.
That made me entire day. Because at the age of 5, my daughter understands what Christmas is really about. The reason she brought this up at the store this week was because she watched a new VeggieTales DVD.

VeggieTales: Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas
VeggieTales® the global leader in kids’ faith-based home entertainment is featuring pop culture icon, Si Robertson of Duck Commander®, in the cast of its upcoming Christmas DVD, “Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas.” Scheduled to arrive in Christian retail outlets on Oct. 19, 2013, followed by a broader release in general retailers on Oct. 22, 2013, the new holiday story blends great fun and entertainment while telling a tale of the true meaning of Christmas as only VeggieTales can.
Top-rated reality television star, Si Robertson, is transformed into a loveable and wise okra janitor named Silas. Silas narrates the adventures of the holiday flick, which stars Larry the Cucumber, the vibrant Head Elf of the mall who will stop at nothing to assist a compassionate young girl on her quest to help a neighbor in need for Christmas. Bob the Tomato co-stars as Phillip Fleagle, a harried mall employee who takes some time to realize that there is more to the holiday season than material gifts and light displays.
My daughter watched VeggieTales: Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas twice this week. She loves it. Which makes me quite happy. I love being able to have quality Christian entertainment in our home. I love the story about helping a local family in need. It is important all year to be sharing God’s love in a practical way, but a reminder at the holidays is timely. It is fun that a new character, Silas the Okra, is being played by such a popular TV icon. This DVD is a perfect addition to our already growing VeggieTales video library, this DVD is a new must watch DVD for the holiday season.
