WOW! That is a lot of blogs!!!ReplyDelete
My favorite special is probably Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I know it's loved by so many, but there is a good reason. Just reminds me of my childhood and also now of raising my own kids.
But really, there are so many good ones to chose from!
Great giveaway, thanks.ReplyDelete
Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer is hands down the best holiday show.

Thank you for participating in this fun Thanksgiving event. I love A Charlie Brown Christmas, but my all time favorite is A Christmas Carol. I saw an animated version that was not really a cartoon in the sense that Charlie Brown is, but it was awesome and I look for it every year hoping to watch it again :)ReplyDelete
