I love the holiday season and yes we’ve already started watching Christmas movies around our house! The Disney’s The Search for Santa Paws will be released on Blu-Ray + DVD on November 23rd and what better way to start off the holiday season! Okay if you want you can wait until after Thanksgiving to watch it but be sure to grab your copy on the 23rd or better yet Pre-Order it from Disney Movie Rewards (see offer below) so you don’t have to hit those shopping crowds after Thanksgiving.
We were lucky enough to receive a copy early and my girls and I sat down and watched it together a few days ago. It was a very touching yet fun movie. At first I was prepared for it to be a little sappy and corny because of I’ve seen enough dog movies that just aren’t done very well. However this one was GREAT! Definitely exceeded my expectations and helped me really get into the holiday spirit! I’m sure this will definitely be a repeat watch many time during the month of December.
Disney Movie Rewards has a great deal going on right now where you can pre-order your copy of The Search for Santa Paws on Blu-Ray + DVD for only $27.99 that will also include 200 bonus points and a FREE Plush Pup.

“Someone once told me that the spirit of Christmas is embodied in the hearts of children, untouched as of yet by the doubts, fears and disappointments of the adult world.”
--Santa Claus in “The Search for Santa Paws”
Whether you’re nine or ninety-nine, Santa Claus likely still holds a special place in your heart. Maybe you remember sitting on his knee at your local mall as a child or writing—and re-writing—him a letter asking for a dollhouse or red wagon. Many of us remember staying up past midnight in hopes of catching a glimpse of him as he came down your chimney.
As parents, we pass down the stories and traditions of Santa Claus. Even if we can’t think of a logical explanation as to how he visits every home on one night or why there are so many Santa look-alikes all around town each December, it is important that we support the true meaning of Christmas and the Santa Cause. Kids ask us tough questions all the time, and this one, like many others, is one that doesn’t come with a clear-cut answer. The simplest thing is to tell your children to have faith and to just believe. Children love magic, so if you just explain that Santa is magical, that should hopefully help them understand the underlying spirit of Christmas.
Santa Claus is a wonderful tradition, and establishing traditions in your family that get passed down from generation to generation—such as baking cookies for Santa and his elves each Christmas Eve or leaving carrots out for his reindeer—helps create a bond between you and your children. It also makes the holiday more meaningful, memorable and fun for kids, who otherwise might complain about wearing a coat and tie to Christmas Eve dinner at grandma’s. So despite the fact that logic may tell you otherwise, make a point of teaching your children about Santa Claus, his 8 tiny reindeer, his sleigh, his workshop and of course, his best friend, Paws.
THE SEARCH FOR SANTA PAWS is Available on Blu-ray & DVD November 23rd!
