Since it is the Season of Santa, I have been thinking a lot about the holidays and wondering whether the kids today have the same kind of holiday I had when I was younger. I know what you are thinking "Younger? You are young." But you've got to know what I mean... Do they still enjoy Rudolph's blinking red nose and Frosty's magic hat, or do they turn on the TV hoping to find Sponge Bob's Christmas Special and Hannah Montana singing "All I want for Christmas is You." Christmas is such a magical time for those who are young and old. So in the spirit of the Holidays I thought I would run down the list of the CLASSIC Holiday Tales from the 20th century that still remind me of my magical childhood Christmas's
"The Snowman" by Raymond Biggs. An illustrated story book with no words, just fantastic magical drawings of a boy and his snowman friend. No words! Just Pictures... its like a dream for any young kid!
"Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" written by Robert May and Romeo Muller. A Glowing Nose! Who thinks this stuff up! Its like GOLD. To tell you the truth, if one of my peers came to me with a blinking red nose, I think I'd be syked to have them as a friend! How cool is that?
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" a Dr. Seuss FAVORITE of my. "And what happened then? Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then - the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two!"
"Frosty the Snowman" Lyrics by Steve "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson. There is nothing better than a story of a magical hat that brings a snowman alive, with a song to go along with it!
"Charlie Brown Christmas" by Charles Shultz. Shouldn't we all have a Charlie Brown Christmas tree somewhere in our holidays?
