Dear Santa (2020)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“This season has always for me been about like the innocence.  And it’s unbelievable when you actually get to see it firsthand. ” – Dad.

Number of Times Seen – 1 (25 Dec 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Documentary about the many people who devote their time and money to helping underprivileged kids get their wishes fulfilled on Christmas via Operation Santa.

Bottom Line – Great documentary that works so well. Love the fact that they present things in a way for kids (and adults) who still believe in Santa can believe that he is running the whole operation along with his elves. The movie gives us some great stories of kids who dream of certain presents for the holidays and the people who are willing to do all they can to fulfill these dreams. The film jumps back and forth between the different cities and allows us to see how everything is quite similar around the country. The most poignant part of this film for me is actually the credits because they show the diverse group of people from different faiths that worked together in making this film.  As a Jew, I was proud to see some Jewish families taking their time to tell a story about someone else’s faith, yet still show their own faith when it truly counts. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – End credits are filled with pictures of crew members and their loved ones celebrating the holidays during their personal credit. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
