I haven’t seen Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas, but I did see the Cinema Snob’s commentary on it, and I honestly don’t really need to see it to know how bad it is. Of course, whenever I see something so bad I have to see the good in it. Considering that this film is considered one of the worst films of all time, and I actually believe has the top spot there, there isn’t anything more that I should say about it.
The issue with the film is that it tells nothing that we haven’t heard before, that there is a “war on Christmas” and people want to take the Christ out of it, blah blah blah. Like this film, I’m not going to say anything that hasn’t been said before.
Personally, I really think Thanksgiving needs to be saved, but the presence of Black Friday has proven that for years. Many are really saying this because now all the retailers are open on Thanksgiving for sales.
Now, I realize that Thanksgiving is a pretty questionable origin. Some say that the Pilgrims and Indians is a myth, and it started colonization and all of the bad things that happened there. Most will say that Thanksgiving is about being thankful.
However, how can we be thankful when shops are giving deals, almost saying “you don’t have enough”. Yeah, you knew I was going there. I’m not about to tell you that you can’t shop on Thanksgiving, but for gosh sake, can you just be thankful for what you have.
