As much as I love our DVD player and the ability to watch movies that I want to watch whenever I feel like it, I must say that a little bit of the excitement of the Christmas movie is missing for today's families. When I was young, we looked forward with eager anticipation to the one night of the year that "The Wizard of Oz" would be broadcast on TV. Kids talked about it at school the day before and the day after. It was the same with all of the Christmas movies. Now, you can watch them all year round, so it is kind of like, "meh". In any case, there are still some movies that must be watched during the holiday season or it just doesn't feel like Christmas! Watching them during the rest of the year is not quite as satisfying as it is to watch them with the tree twinkling in the background while eating popcorn and sipping a Hot Cocoa Bomb or Hot Orange Punch. So, here is our family's top 10 picks for the Christmas season!
Not only do we have the movie, but we have theleg lamp cookie cutter, the leg lamp ornament, and the figurine of the leg lamp being buried. There are other figurines that depict the story as well, I may have to do some shopping myself!
