NATIONWIDE RESEARCH AT A GLANCE
A Christmas Treat! We recently asked Christian Music Radio listeners about their favorite Christmas Movies and TV Shows. Here are their Top 5 Responses:
- (tie) Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
- Miracle On 34thStreet (some made a point of commenting “the old one”)
- Home Alone
- (tie) The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
(tie) A Christmas Story
(tie) National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Hmmm. Didn’t see Rudolph coming! In fact, check out the Top 3 on this list: All could be described as Christmas Innocence.In the case of Rudolph and Miracle, not fast paced and not 21stCentury looking.
This mirrors what we see elsewhere in our research about Christmas – a yearning for the opposite of our coarse, angry, busy, hurried world. No one dies, but the Wet Bandits come close.
Quiet, hopeful, peaceful, traditional, innocent, goodwill toward women and men.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NIV
