The Holiday season has officially begun tonight with the first of the season broadcast of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. The 7-year-old demanded that we watch it as a family. As the time neared we all settled in. The little one is working on a bracelet with her rainbow loom, Meg is laying with her favorite little bear,appropriately named “bear”, the dog is in the middle of the floor chewing on her bone while the hubby has fallen asleep. I sit here typing.
Family time is nice time. It does look a little different than it did as I watched Rudolph as a kid. I remember searching the TV listings circling the date and times of the specials. If you missed it when it was on there was nothing to do but wait until next year. I told the girls this as the show was about to start tonight to which I was told “that much have been tough”. Smartass kids. Last year our DVR was filled with specials, until I realized that they were shown several times on several stations over the season. This year we printed what seems to be a pretty complete list of holiday shows. It is over 3 pages long. I love the season but can not commit to seeing them all! 🙂
The ability to chill out in pj’s with an almost 50-year-old Christmas special with the people you love, well it does not get much better now does it? I remember watching this very show with my mother. I wonder if my girls will be sitting in a living room 30ish years from now watching with families of their own. I guess I will have to make a note to make sure I write a blog post while sitting with the grandchildren watching Rudolph. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?!
