Christmas is just around the corner, and all the kids are sending off their letters to Santa Clause; all of them, that is, except for Laura Carrot. Her stocking might very well be empty this year. It is not because she has been especially bad, but because her Dad is in danger of losing his job. Join Bob the tomato, Larry the cucumber, and the rest of the gang as they discover the true story behind Saint Nick, and learn a valuable lesson on the joy of giving in a holiday adventure Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas.
A Story of St. Nick
When Larry finds out that Laura might not find anything in her stocking Christmas morning, he sets about writing a letter addressed to the North Pole. Bob, has a better idea, however. He thinks that what Larry and Laura really need is the truth. So he decides to take them on a little trip to learn the story behind Saint Nicholas. As the Veggies travel back in time in Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas they are surprised to learn that Santa was really once a little kid just like some of them. They learn that he started giving gifts out of love, when he learned what a great gift God had given him. Will the Veggies be able to use the lessons Nick learned to help Laura, or will a letter to the North Pole do the trick? An adventure through time with Bob, Larry, and the rest of the lovable Veggies in Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas includes an all new "Silly Song With Larry," and an extra special music video featuring Matthew West, Amy Grant, and Operation Christmas Child.
Filled with lovable vegetables and silly songs, Veggie Tales is about more than cartoon characters, the series of films created by Big Idea are meant to plant seeds of faith and character in viewers young and old. Veggie Tales was first created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki who were looking for a fun and creative way to share Biblical stories, values, and lessons with children around the country. They landed on an idea of a group of veggies living on the kitchen countertop (after all, what mom would not be ok with her kid falling in love with veggies) and the rest is history. Creating a loveable cast of characters such as Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Junior Asparagus, Pa Grape, the French Peas, Madame Blueberry, Jimmy and Jerry Gourds, Laura Carrot, and Archibald the Asparagus Veggie Tales teaches wonderful faith based lessons viewers young and old alike can enjoy!
Valuable Veggie Taught Lessons
Enjoyable, humorous, family friendly stories fill the screen when Veggie Tales is on, but the stories such as Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas teach valuable lessons as well! In the film Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas Larry the cucumber and Laura Carrot learn a valuable lesson on real generosity. They learn what it looks like to give out of love, not compulsion, and to give even when it hurts. They learn that we can love because God first loved us, and that generosity should flow from a gratitude to God for giving us the greatest gift of all; his son Jesus. Most importantly, Larry and Laura learn that generosity and joyful giving are not a "Christmas time" thing, they should be a "year round thing." That generosity and loving one another are not confined to the holiday season. As you and your family watch Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas you will not only learn about the life of St. Nick, you will not only laugh along at the escapades of the Veggies and Larry's musical abilities in "Silly Songs with Larry," you will also be reminded of the truth of the gospel and be inspired to give with a joyful heart.
