VeggieTales Saint Nicholas 2009 DVDRip XviD-EPiSODE | 349.46 MB
Discover the story behind the Christmas holiday in this entertaining tale put on by some of the world's favorite vegetables. This is not your typical Mary-and-Joseph story. Rather, it is about the little boy who eventually became known as St. Nicholas. Using cute songs and humorous dialogue that entertain adults and children alike, the Veggies tell the tale of a boy whose parents dedicated their lives to helping others. When they died, he set out to discover who he was and found out that his place in life was serving others. Political leaders of the day made it difficult for people to help each other, so Nicholas had to come up with the sneaky ways to help others. Tapping into several world traditions, the Veggies show young Nicholas using chimneys and shoes to provide gifts for those in need. The DVD demonstrates how a love for God translates to a love for humankind. It shows how a person can benefit from selflessness and how the tradition of giving began with one individual. This DVD uses humor very appropriate for its audience and exhibits cinematographic, artistic, and musical excellence. The Veggie drawings are amusing and the moral values behind the title are exceptional. Not only does it bring in an international perspective, but it promotes service to and compassion for others. 50 min.; Ages 2-5.
