Things I Learned From Christmas With the Kranks…
I love Christmas and all that it stands for. Some of our family traditions involve watching our favorite Christmas movies and my personal favorite is Christmas With the Kranks.
Today’s post is a blogger collab with Phy. She is writing about the same theme but with a different movie. Go check her post out!
Christmas With the Kranks is my favorite holiday film because I find it to teach a few things. Here are two incredibly important reasons why I love CWtK.
- It shows the importance of thankfulness and saying “Thank You”.
In the film, Luther has a difficult time thanking everyone for their help in creating a picture perfect party last minute due to his daughter’s surprise visit. He knows that his attitude was unkind and saying a simple “thank you” was so incredibly humbling, he couldn’t find the heart to do it. “Thank you” was kind of like an apology. Sometimes saying “Thank You” is hard, but is shows someone that you are truly appreciate of what they did for you. Luther’s neighbors didn’t have to help him and Nora out. They helped them because it was mainly for Blair.
- Acceptance of others and their opinion.
After Nora and Luther tell everyone that they are skipping the holiday to go on a cruise, their friends instantly acted like a major crime was being committed. What their friends failed to realize was that Nora and Luther were spending their first Christmas without their daughter. It was going to be hard to celebrate without her with them. Not everyone celebrates Christmas and that is okay.
