Best Holiday Movies of All-Time
I also looked for some common themes. To me, Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends through holiday rituals. It is about giving, sharing, love, hope, joy and celebration. It is about good feelings towards each other and peace on earth. Christmas is also about finding redemption, second chances and miracles. People have a chance to rediscover a new self-awareness and learn what is truly important in their lives. There is a renewal of hope and even the possibility of finding romance. It is about discovering the beauty of humankind.
