Children Christmas Specials

12 Dec

Olive, the Other ReindeerI love the DVR! I have been able to record and watch many of the classic and many of the new children’s Christmas specials this year with the kids. If you want to find out when your favorites are on, check out the schedule at Christmas Special Wiki.  I have listed the ones we have watched or are set to watch below by the year they were released.   They are great for getting them motivated to get up and ready for school on time.  Once they are all set, we watch one of the specials because most run about 21 minutes if you fast forward the commercials.  One of their all time favorites is Olive, the Other Reindeer.
