Christmas Movie & TV Specials for the Whole Family
“So earlier this week, as an excuse to avoid doing real work, I threw together a checklist of sorts for Christmas TV specials we’d like to watch, as well as Christmas movies that would be worth a repeat viewing each year. I thought, since I spent all day a few minutes on the lists, I’d make them available to you.” – Jennifer
“Watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer during the holidays has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, back before DVDs or DVRs or even VHS, we had to wait for the yearly showing of Rudolph on CBS. It was a time when the whole family huddled around the TV to follow the adventures of Rudolph and his misfit pals.” – James & Lisa
Easy DIY Snow Globe Treat Jars Inspired by The Santa Clause
“One of my favorite Christmas movies is The Santa Claus with Tim Allen. I love how it addresses some of the biggest concerns about Santa Claus, such as how does Santa enter a home that does not have a fireplace? Or what happens if Santa were to fall off the roof and die? One of my favorite things about The Santa Clause movies though is the magic. There is magic in everything, right down to the magical snow globe collection. If you are looking for a fun movie and activity to do as a family, that ends with a cute display item (or gift exchange item) then check out these The Santa Claus inspired DIY Snow Globe Treat Jars.” – Becca
“The Muppets must be a pretty big fan of Christmas, because they have quite a number of Christmas movies and specials. I had 2 or 3 that I watched all the time when I was growing up, but then when I really went to think about it I kept coming up with more Muppet Christmas movies! So if you’re a fan of Kermit and friends and enjoy the holidays, here are the Muppet Christmas movies not to be missed. Some of them are still available, some are almost impossible to find, but all are full of Muppet goodness.” – Becky
