Kirk Cameron is introducing a new way of thinking about Christmas and its many traditions this year with the film "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas," in theaters on Friday.
In his first release since "Unstoppable," Cameron aims to "put the Christ back in Christmas" this holiday season by attempting to debunk disparaging theories surrounding Christmastime. Furthermore, the actor shares his own ideas on where Christmas traditions originated, including loose Biblical interpretations of the Christmas tree and the nativity scene. It is the actor's hope that Christians are inspired to protect and preserve customary Christmas activities after watching "Saving Christmas."
"I'm making 'Saving Christmas' because I love Christmas, I love everything about it," Cameron told The Christian Post before rattling off several Christmas traditions such as roasting chestnuts, drinking hot chocolate, and enjoying Christmas stockings, stories, trees and food. more >>

Kirk Cameron not only spent his birthday with the stars of "Duck Dynasty" recently, but also shared his new film "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" with the famous Robertson clan.
Similar to Cameron, who turned 44 on Oct. 12, the Robertson's family patriarch Phil aims to "put the Christ back in Christmas" this year by supporting Cameron's film. "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" is headed to theaters for just two weeks on Nov. 14, but Cameron announced Tuesday that he offered the Robertsons an early screening.
"The heavens opened and a shaft of light came streaming down when Duck Dynasty's King and Queen, Phil and Kay Robertson, cooked my 44th birthday dinner in their country kitchen, spoiled us boys with outdoor fun and faithful inspiration, and the Robertson family watched Saving Christmas in their camouflage living room" Cameron posted on Facebook on Nov. 4. more >>
In light of his new film "Saving Christmas," Kirk Cameron is also speaking out on Halloween celebrations, urging Christians to participate in the holiday this year.
"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" hits select theaters on Nov. 14, reminding Christians of the Biblical relevance of Christmas time. With explanations for the Christmas tree, Santa Claus and presents, the film helps put "the Christ back in Christmas." Furthermore, "Saving Christmas" attempts to debunk theories that Christmas is still rooted in pagan traditions. In a recent interview, Cameron addressed the same theories as they are applied to Halloween, clarifying why Christians "should have the biggest Halloween party on your block."
"The real origins have a lot to do with All Saints Day and All Hallows Eve," the actor told The Christian Post. "If you go back to old church calendars, especially Catholic calendars, they recognize the holiday All Saints Day, with All Hallows Eve the day before, when they would remember the dead. That's all tied in to Halloween." more >>

"I am extremely excited to begin this new, ongoing relationship with Provident Films," Cameron said in a press release. "My hope for 'Saving Christmas' is that families all across the country will join with my family in putting Christ back into Christmas! For too many years Christmas has been attacked and hammered by those outside the church, and it's even changed how we think about Christmas inside the church. We are proudly going to put Christ back into Christmas and remind Christians why this is not only a holy day, but a celebration as well. I believe that families will love this movie!" more >>
