And here is my kids’ version.
Some of these are shows we’ve watched in the past & a few are new.
Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas is one I mentioned in my video. A Jim Henson movie originally made for HBO (I believe, at least that is where I first saw it), it’s a take on the classic story, The Gift of the Magi. Both the kids & I enjoy it.
Lionel Christmas 2 is great if you have train enthusiasts.
Arthur makes me crazy but my kids look forward to Arthur’s Perfect Christmas every year.
Casper’s Haunted Christmas will be a new addition this year. It’s not the Casper I loved as a kid but my kids’ have liked the other Casper movies they’ve watched.
Rockette’s Radio City Christmas Spectacular has never held my kids’ attention for the entire show but they enjoy 15 minutes or so of it.
We have a few Christmas Adventures in Odyssey we listen to each December but we’ve never watched a Christmas episode. So Electric Christmas will be a new one for us (and while we’re watching, I’ll have to resist seeing “We gonna’ rock down to Electric Avenue.” You’re welcome for the earworm.)
Yes Virginia: The Film is a cartoon adaptation of the famous Christmas letter penned by Virginia O’Hanlon in 1897. Neil Patrick Harris is a favorite of mine, so his voice in the film is a bonus. You may want to preview this movie, though, to see how it handles Santa v. your views/what your children believe.
Curios George: A Very Monkey Christmas is a beloved movie here. It will be a nostalgia movie for them, I expect.
I put I’ll Be Home for Christmas in the queue for my daughter. What tween wouldn’t like a movie with Jonathon Taylor Thomas in it?!
Anastasia isn’t really a Christmas movie but with the winter setting, I put it in their queue.
If you haven’t read my post on the queue for adults, check it out.
