Tis the season of Christmas specials. I love them. Of course I do. I grew up with them. I looked forward each season to seeing them. And sure you can buy them on DVD and enjoy them any time you time you want, but really where is the fun in that??? It's more fun to anticipate and wait for it to be on.
Tonight, the Peanuts gang is on to teach us the true meaning of Christmas. I love this one, because it really does. It's not about presents. It's not about lights and Santa. It's about the birth of our Savoir. Ironically, it was the creator's least favorite special. He said the animation was poor. But everyone loves it most. The message is simple and true.
Of course I enjoy the lighter and more child-like specials as well: Rudolph. (It's already been on!) Santa Claus is Comin' to Town. It's been on but will be on again on ABC Family. I like some of the newer ones too: Prep and Landing and Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. But I think the biggest treat is watching them with the kids.
