Giveaway: Dreamworks Holiday DVD set and Christmas Classics DVD set


I received product samples for review

Happy Thanksgiving!  Doesn't it feel great to know that the holiday season has well and truly begun?  So, what are you and your family doing over Thanksgiving Weekend!  I'm sure everyone has their dinner plans ready, but what about after you've had your fill of turkey, stuffing and pie?  We like to take a walk to keep ourselves from feeling too sluggish, then settle down on the sofa to watch a tv show or a movie.  We don't usually watch football games (unless it's the soccer kind of football, but the English Premiere League doesn't usually play games on Thursday), so we choose a movie or tv special like the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, or one of the many holiday specials on the networks at this time of the year.  Over the weekend, we'll watch our local lights parade, maybe do a bit of shopping (but probably not on Black Friday-- I tried it once and it knocked the stuffing out of me!).  And sometime over the next three days we're sure to find ourselves back on the couch, watching yet another holiday special!

If you love holiday specials, you'll love the holiday DVD sets I'm giving away today!  In fact, I'm sure you may have seen some of them before, and watching them may even be part of your annual holiday tradition!  I grew up watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on tv every year, so I was really excited to review the special boxed DVD set of the Original Christmas Classics shows.  It has 7 classic holiday specials that practically every American child knows and loves:


  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  • Santa Claus is Comin to Town
  • Frosty the Snowman
  • Frosty Returns
  • Mr. Magoos Christmas Carol
  • The Little Drummer Boy
  • Cricket on the Hearth


My favorite, of course, is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I get so nostalgic seeing the quaint stop-motion animation and hearing Burl Ives' friendly voice!  My sophisticated 21st century kids got a good laugh out of the low-tech effects, but they loved the story of how Rudolph and his dentist elf friend Herman came to realize that what made them different also made them special.  

Much as they loved watching the Christmas Classics, my kids loved the Dreamworks Holiday Collection DVD even more, and as nostalgic as I am for the classics, I have to admit that the Dreamworks movies are better.  They're technically better, of course, and my kids know and love the characters.  I have a feeling these are going to be the new classics that my kids remember fondly from their youth, and force their kids to watch over Thanksgiving weekend!  Well, I doubt if there's going to be much forcing involved, since each of the four episodes are great:


  • Shrek the Halls
  • Merry Madagascar
  • Kung Fu Panda Holiday
  • Gift of the Night Fury
These specials debuted separately, and this is the first time that all four have been presented together in a boxed edition (2 DVDs).  In addition to the episodes themselves, there are a few DVD extras, mostly related to the Madagascar characters. We had a great time watching these, and so will you!
