Hooray for the Holidays - Christmas DVDs!

You know how I feel about Veggie Tales (love them!) so when I was offered the chance to review another Veggie Tales DVD I jumped at the chance.  Then throw in some Christmas favorites from my childhood and I'm all over that!

The first one we watched was the Original Christmas Classics!  This set contains four of the most beloved holiday TV specials of all time, including the Rankin/Bass classics “Frosty the Snowman,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” and “Frosty Returns.”  Do you remember watching them as a kid?  I do, and it was one of my favorite things about Christmas!  Now I can watch them whenever I want, even on hot Arizona July days when I want to cool down!  I know it's October, but I've been walking around singing all the fun Christmas songs from these movies!

The Original Christmas Classics box set will be available wherever Blu-rays are sold for $44.99 SRP.

Next up is the Veggie Tales, The Little Drummer Boy.

In this Veggie-version of a holiday classic, Junior Asparagus stars as The Little Drummer Boy, a lonely child who finds the true meaning of Christmas when he stumbles upon the birth of the baby Jesus. A story of generosity, hope and love, this timeless tale will warm the hearts of children everywhere!

Bonus Features:
  • Audio Commentary
  • “The Little Drummer Boy” Music Video
  • Sing-Along Songs—“The 8 Polish Foods of Christmas” and “Can’t Smile Without Ewe”
  • Behind the Music of “The Little Drummer Boy”
  • Visit a Drum Factory with Junior
  • Family Activity—Make Your Own Drum
  • Interactive Book Preview—Christmas Is Finally Here
I loved this DVD!  The story was so sweet and who doesn't love Junior Asparagus?!  My son has watched this several times and really enjoys it!  Plus, now he drums all the time, on anything he can find to use as a drum!

Both of these are a great addition to your Holiday collection!  Can't wait to buy it?  Well, one of you lucky readers can win each of these - The Original Christmas Classics and Veggie Tales, The Little Drummer Boy!  Very cool, if you ask me!

I love teaching my children how to be charitable. We teach them to give year round, but during this time of year we fill Operation Christmas Child giftboxes to send gifts to children overseas.
