    We are not Christians, so we don’t watch a lot of religious movies. We tend to celebrate the more pagan ideas of the holiday like bunnies and eggs. However, Hop is a cute one we like to watch.

    I am so glad to see Easter Parade on that list! We watched it on Sunday in preperation. It just is NOT easter until Judy has sang Don Your Easter Bonnet!!

    I’ve never seen Passion of the Christ, I may check it out now.

    I found veggie tales a little too religious so it’s not my fav show.

    The only two movies on this list I haven’t watched before are the ’71 and ’77 cartoons, and only because they did not appeal to me graphically. However I did watch Hop about 4 times (by myself, with friends, with family and then when babysitting… that was a lot of Hop in a year). 😀
