Classic Christmas movie is a winner for families.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this classic holiday movie is a must-see for families. The story is filled with cheery messages about caring for others and sharing our gifts, with a little touch of empowerment by way of Kris's determination to do the right thing, even when it means arguing with a mean and misguided mayor. Parents and kids alike will delight in the story's take on how established Christmas traditions (Santa's red suit, gifts under a tree, and the date of Christmas itself) came to be. There are some tense moments between Kris and Winter before the holiday spirit warms the warlock's heart, but only your littlest tots might be temporarily frightened by them.
