Did You Know?


Sections of this film were shot at the Will Rogers High School, a beautiful example of art deco architecture. But the Girl's Washroom, where scenes between Ashley, played by Lexi Ainsworth, and Nicole, played by Cassidee Vandalia, were shot, was so small that the producer had to watch the video of the takes crammed in in a toilet stall with the assistant director and script supervisor.

An entertaining Christmas movie with deep spiritual meaning.
2 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So This is Christmas, is the story of a family broken by the death of the mother, and how God intervened and showed how love can be strongest in pain.

In all of our lives, trouble seems to come when we least expect it or at our moment of greatest weakness. There is no good time to lose spouse or parent and the loss of a loved one can tear a family apart. God is a healer and He works in mysterious ways. Sometimes we need an affirmation that God is really working to help us out. What God does isn't always direct or obvious but his healing touch is profound never the less.

Christmas is the time we celebrate God taking action to heal a lost and broken world and "So This Is Christmas" illustrates how God is also concerned with our world,our private brokenness and how he works to heal us and those we love. If you are one of the many people who feel down at Christmas time, let this movie lighten your heart. If you need a lift, or just want to watch an enjoyable movie; So This Is Christmas is well worth your time this holiday season!
