Actor Kirk Cameron has a holiday wish for America’s mothers – get back in the kitchen and save Christmas!
"If you are a mom, if you are a wife, if you're the keeper of your home, I want you to know that your joy is so important this Christmas," said Cameron, who has become as well known in recent years for his conservative Christian views than his 1980s sitcom work.
"Because Christmas is about joy, and if the joy of the Lord is your strength, remember, the joy of the mom is her children's strength, so don't let anything steal your joy,” he continued. “If you let your joy get stolen, it will sap your strength."
Cameron, who is promoting his newly released film, “Saving Christmas,” urged America’s moms to go bananas decorating their homes with holiday cheer.
"Let your children, your family, see your joy in the way you decorate your home this Christmas, in the food that you cook, the songs you sing, the stories you tell, and the traditions that you keep," the former child star said. "Invite your whole neighborhood into your Christmas and invite the world into our story of our king and his kingdom."
As for America's dads, Cameron urged them in a separate video to perform manly holiday duties like hanging Christmas lights -- or maybe even the dishes.
"Don't be a 'bah humbug'," he said.
