Contest: Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas

posted by Nell Minow

merry larry Veggie Tales: Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas is the latest holiday treat from Bob and Larry and the gang, and it is one of their best.  “Merry Larry” is an enthusiastic employee of the Spring Valley Mall who serves as “Head Elf” during the Christmas season. Each day he hears countless children’s requests for what they’d like under their Christmas trees. But one little girl’s request catches his attention.  Christina just wants to help her friend, Mrs. Crespie, who lost her house in a fire, get a new house for Christmas. Merry Larry sets off on a caper to create the biggest light show EVER to bring attention to Mrs. Crespie’s situation. Meanwhile, the mall manager, Philip Fleagle (Bob the Tomato) finds he has NO lights and no head elf for the mall’s spectacular Christmas display, right on the day the owner of the mall is supposed to visit! Will Philip realize what the “true light of Christmas” is really all about and help Merry Larry rally the community to get Mrs. Crespie in a home by Christmas?

I have a copy to give away!  Send me an email with Larry in the subject line and tell me your favorite silly song.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only)  I’ll pick a winner at random on December 6.  Good luck!

The ingredients for this film were so irresistible that it is a unexpected bonus to find that it is so much better than it needed to be. It's based on a true story of extraordinary kindness, generosity, and friendship and it stars a bunch of adorable English actors (Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy) w
