Seriously, I realized there are no real Christmas specials anymore. I mean there's the annual TV parade and Broadway stuff, but what about the specials. BBC have Christmas specials, however I think we are too cool for them in the Americas. Yet, I remember the days I would curl up on the couch and watch my Christmas specials.
Here are a few of my faves over the years.
Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas-I loved this show just because it was about family and making the best with what you had. And it was the Muppets, how could you not love the Muppets!
Donny and Marie Christmas Special-I know, I know Mormons are not the "it" thing right now, but when I was 4 or 5, I loved Donny and Marie. They were the wonder twins even though they wasn't twins. However it was a great special and I've watched it every other year.
He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special-Cheesy but cute...a couple of earth kids go to He-Man's homeland and bring Christmas to another world.
A Charlie Brown Christmas-the dance scene, all I can say is the dance scene
