the time has arrived!
Halloween and Remembrance Day have come and gone, and now it is time to get into some serious Christmas cheer. In the spirit of the season, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite things from the holiday season. Today I wanted to reminisce with you all about my favourite classic Christmas movie: Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.
I’m not sure about other areas of the globe, but if you grew up in North America then I sincerely hope you have seen this movie by now. In this heartwarming tale, a little orphan boy named Kris Kringle, is adopted into a family of elves.
Kris Kringle grows up into a man with a mission: to bring Christmas to Sombertown and end the reign of the evil Burgermeister Meisterburger. To do so, he takes on many challenges, including an encounter with the terrifying Winter Warlock.
Add in a few song and dance numbers, some reindeer, and a charming little narrator, and you have yourself the makings of a classic Christmas movie. For me, nothing says ‘Christmas’ like cuddling up on the sofa with your favourite blanket, drinking a hot beverage, and watching a movie from your childhood. This movie is not only something I remember from my childhood, but one that my parents and grandparents have watched as well. It really is one of those great traditions!
What is your favourite Christmas classic? Rudolph? Frosty the Snowman? I’d love to know!
Until next time,
PS. Official countdown says 41 days until Christmas!
