The Santa Clauses Season One Christian Review – My Viewing Recommendations:
I wanted to love The Santa Clauses. Since I really liked the original movie, I had high hopes for this new series. However, The Santa Clause 3 is on my list of the worst Christmas movies.
Overall, this series is entertaining, but it isn’t funny. I have detailed potentially objectionable content above. There is “magic” throughout these episodes including a Christmas witch. While I had expected this series to embrace the real meaning of Christmas, it fails to do that. But giving is stressed as being more important than receiving presents.
If you are against magic and the Christmas witch will bother you, steer clear of this show. Additionally, there are great Christmas classic shows that are much better than The Santa Clauses Season One.
