On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Merry Christmas! Our second annual Special Christmas Episode has arrived for your holiday consumption. This year we are talking about one of the youngest films to achieve “Christmas Classic” status: Elf. Boasting one of Will Ferrell’s finest roles (Buddy the Elf), the film has found a way to warm hearts and uplift spirits while also becoming a staple of households during the holiday season. We take some guesses as to why that is, along with discussing some of our own traditions. Enjoy!
