>Have you ever really watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer? Santa’s not very nice. In fact, he should be put on the naughty list for the way he treats Rudolph. Of course, I still watch the show because I love the music. Except that sappy song Clarice sings. “There’s always tomorrow…” Blah. Now it’s stuck in your head.
It’s only fitting that I like that show because more often than not, my bangs flip up like Hermy’s. But, I don’t want to be a dentist, nor am I an elf. I’m a little tall and not magical enough by current standards.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas…never on my queue to watch. It just seemed too scary to me as a kid, kind of like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
And Frosty the Snowman? I don’t watch cartoons during the holidays to make me feel sad. Tuesday night in and of itself will do that for me. I watch the cartoons to escape, to remember the joy of childhood and in the case of the Peanuts special, learn the truisms of life.
“I know nobody loves me, why do we need a holiday season to emphasize it?” Word, CB. Word.
Ok, maybe Charlie Brown and I need some Xanax or a happy pill to lessen the holiday blues, but watching The Year Without a Santa (until they go see Mother Nature) will also do the trick.
“Friends call me Snow Miser…whatever I touch….tends to snow in my clutch. I’m too much!”
Speaking of random Christmas Specials, have you seen the Claymation Christmas Special? Probably not unless you are my age and are cursed with my memory.
Please watch this version of Carol of the Bells. It’s my favorite:
Music is my happy pill apparently. Maybe that’s why I like Christmas carols so much.
