It has become somewhat of a tradition that every year towards the end of November or beginning of December I buy a Christmas album or video. My taste is a bit eclectic. Some of my favorites are fun for the whole family while others are definitely not meant for kids. Perhaps in a another post I'll list some of my favorite music but in this one I'm focusing on the videos. Below is a list of some of my favorites. They are in alphabetical order since I don't think I could rank them any other way.
Black Adder Christmas Carol
A Christmas Story
Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas
Happy Holidays with Bing and Frank
Muppet Christmas Carol
Muppet Family Christmas
Robbie the Reindeer
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
Wish for Wings That Work
Year Without a Santa Claus
There are, of course, plenty of other excellent Christmas specials. These happen to be the ones that I find the need to watch if not every year at least every other. If it isn't obvious from the list I love Jim Henson and the Muppets. I also enjoy those specials that mix nostalgia and humor. Rankin and Bass are always fun as are a healthy dose of crooners and cheesy fun.
