Finding worthwhile holiday entertainment is quite a challenge these days. A recent list of “The Top 100 Christmas Movies of All Time” on Rotten Tomatoes placed a movie called “Tangerine” at number 4. Brace yourself for the description:


“After hearing that her boyfriend/pimp cheated on her while she was in jail, a transgender sex worker and her best friend set out to find him and teach him and his new lover a lesson.”


According to the largest movie review website in the world, this is the fourth-best Christmas movie OF ALL TIME. What exactly transgendered prostitution and revenge have to do with the birth of our Lord is unclear, but parents are certainly struggling to find family-friendly entertainment when this is what the film industry celebrates.


In this episode, Catherine offers five wholesome, family-centered Christmas movies for your viewing pleasure this holiday season. She has a recommendation for the kids, the guys, the girls, the couples, and the whole family.  Several of them have a strong Christian theme, and they are all off the beaten path making them truly “fresh.”


Merry Christmas from CPCW!
