    Those are lovely, inspirational movies, although there are several more that everyone ought to be able to show to their kids, including "Miracle on 34th Street"

    --- Where I live, a movie called "Black Nativity", a comedy about African American families at Christmas, is being advertised a lot.May I suggest that parents whose kids see mostly all White faces all year should take their kids?

    Here is a a synopsis:
    In a contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes' celebrated play, the holiday musical drama BLACK NATIVITY follows Langston(Jacob Latimore), a street-wise teen from Baltimore raised by a single mother, as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged relatives Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett). Unwilling to live by the imposing Reverend Cobbs' rules, a frustrated Langston is determined to return home to his mother, Naima (Jennifer Hudson). Langston embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey and along with his new friends, and a little divine intervention, he discovers the true meaning of faith, healing, and family.
