I believe that Christmas season brings magic to almost everywhere in the world. My daughters' favorite holiday probably is Christmas, which is probably my favorite too.
Celebrating Christmas isn't just about the gifts and the colorful and wonderful decorations but it's about something, or someone else. Buck Denver's Why Do We Call It Christmas? explains the meaning of Christmas in a simple, fun and entertaining way.
When I played the DVD, my daughters were filled with "ooohs and aaahs.". They were saying "Oh that's what it means" and "Mom! Is it almost time for Christmas?". :) The characters are cute and very child-friendly. My 3 year old says the pirate looks like Captain Hook (He's the only pirate she knows. LOL).
I also like the songs in the DVD. The characters in the DVD explains a certain fact about Christmas and then proceeds to sing it into a rhyming song. I think this made my daughters remember it more because they sung it in a song.

This is such a nice movie and I like it. It taught my daughters the true meaning of Christmas, why we celebrate it and how it started.
