Do you still believe?
The Polar Express follows the journey of a young boy named Chris (known as Hero-Boy) who isn’t sure if he believes in Santa anymore.
On his journey to the North Pole, he learns a valuable lesson about what it means to believe.
He also learns that the magic of Christmas is kept in one’s heart.
And so, after his adventure, he continues to believe in the spirit of Christmas long after all others in his life have forgotten.
The rest of us aren’t so lucky as to be carried away by the Polar Express when we have doubts about what we believe in.
But, as the conductor says, “Some of the most real things in the world, we cannot see.”
Sometimes, faith alone must be enough.
