Gift Idea - Christmas Oranges DVD
If you love Christmas movies, but want something a little more on the Inspirational side, check out the Christmas Oranges DVD from Covenant Communications.
Based on the Richard Paul Evans novel, follow Rose as she helps others in her orphanage learn about the true meaning of Christmas.
Synopsis - In a town not so far away and a time not so long ago, baby Rose was left on the porch of Greenwoods Orphanage, where Mrs. Hartley and the children under her tender care become her family. But when tragedy strikes, Rose loses the only home she has ever known and she is abruptly shipped to Irongates—a place that seems as cold and cruel as her previous home was kind. The strict headmaster, Mr. Crampton, immediately seems to dislike Rose—and makes sure she and the other children are punished for any minor infraction of his rules. Rose soon makes friends with Emily, but in spite of her gentle and forgiving nature, some of the children will take any chance they can to get her into trouble. When she learns that every Christmas Mr. Crampton’s generous brother gives an orange to each child, Rose waits in eager anticipation. The way the other children describe the sweet and juicy fruit, Rose is sure it must be the most delicious treat in the world. However, on Christmas morning, Rose is devastated when she learns Mr. Crampton is punishing her again. But Christmas is a time of miracles. Share a slice of Christmas sweetened with friendship and love in this poignant Christmas story based on a classic holiday tale.
I watched this with my girls, and even though they are young they were enthralled by the story. They were so devastated when Rose didn't get her orange, and thought the end was "beautiful, just beautiful." They also wanted to know why Santa had never brought them an orange on Christmas, and have added it to their list.
