The Christmas Lodge DVD Review & Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, November 15, 2011



When November rolls around, I can't help but think about Christmas and how much I love this time of year! I enjoy getting the Christmas tree put up and talking with the kids about what Christmas is really all about. It's fun to listen to great Christmas music, and of course...movies too! I am always looking for wholesome family-friendly movies we can watch together, which is why I was excited when introduced to The Christmas Lodge!

Synopsis:
Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people.

During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does.

Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the Christmas Lodge.

My husband enjoy sitting down together and watching a movie at least one night a week. We were both really looking forward to watching this one, and had a feeling we'd love it. We were right!

This heartwarming family drama is a movie that follows the story of Mary show works to fulfill her grandfather's wish of reuniting their family for one last Christmas at the Christmas Lodge. I found the storyline to be a bit predictable, but still interesting and one that kept our attention the whole time. It left us feeling uplifted and happy which is the type of movie I love! Most importantly, I like that this movie is family-friendly...one I wouldn't have to worry about my kids being in the room and watching too. It focuses on the importance of faith, family and tradition which I think is my favorite part of all. It's a terrific movie to watch this time of year especially.

The Christmas Lodge DVD is a great choice in my opinion, for anyone looking for a wholesome and fun family movie with a positive message. We really enjoyed it and plan to watch it again in the coming weeks.

    One of my favorite family Christmas traditions is all of my mom's side of the family gathering at a retreat center for 4-5 days just to be together, visit, eat, play... It's a special family time!

    Thanks for the giveaway!
