Classic 70's Holiday Story!, Aug. 3 2000
This is one of the classic holiday television stories from my childhood (I am now 33). Probably the most memorable part of this particular story (Santa decides to take a vacation) is the Heat Miser/Snow Miser song. Anyone who grew up during the seventies will gleefully remember the animated puppet productions by Rankin/Bass about Frosty and Rudolf and, of course, Santa Claus. However, enjoyment of these stories is not limited to the thirty-something crowd. Last year, when "Rudolf, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" came out on DVD, I purchased it to savour and reminisce with my friends. To my surprise, my nephews and niece (ages 3, 5, and 7) LOVED it. In fact, every time they come to visit - yes, even in the middle of summer - they DEMAND to watch it.
