While most of my holiday posts have been about the absurdity of Christmas, either from terrorists or being held hostage, I am not a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas movies. I do have a soft spot for the holiday and I hope that today’s post proves that. Christmas is about coming together, basking in the essence of life and joy and all the while being a family, whether with strangers or loved ones. Tokyo Godfathers is one of more heartwarming tales of family and the unexpected gifts and ties that happen in our lives. While not truly a Christmas movie, it holds true to the themes of the holiday and offers a compelling story that has far more weight than the typical, formulaic Christmas movies that are out there.
