Sure to be a holiday favorite for the entire family for years to come, this adventure finds the Cat in the Hat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas. On the way, the Thinga-ma-jiger breaks down, and they depend on a variety of animals from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs- and their remarkable abilities to help them make an amazing journey home.
It seems like the start of the holiday season has really caused my time to get away from me because I sat down and started writing this post the day before Thanksgiving and here it is already the first week of December! So I’ll give you what I started with…
My kids and I sat down and watched this movie yesterday to start getting in the Christmas spirit! My four year old keeps telling me, “Mom sometimes it’s really hard waiting for Christmas” I know it seems like it’s forever away but it’ll be here sooner than we think, I mean tomorrow is Thanksgiving, wow I don’t know where this year went!
Okay so now that my kids have watched this DVD a few times now there are a few thoughts I’d like to add. We really enjoyed this Cat in the Hat Christmas DVD as a good one to watch together as a family, not just for the little kids. It’s definitely an animated film but that doesn’t mean it’s just for little kids. My almost 9 year old enjoyed it and I think it really had a great message. At first I was a little thrown because most Christmas videos are full of snow and for a good portion of the beginning, well there’s no snow. So I was like, “This is a Christmas movie???” However the snow shows up not too long after it starts and throughout the movie as the Cat in the Hat and his friends run into one problem after another we are constantly reminded that you can have Christmas anywhere. So there really doesn’t have to be snow to have Christmas – which is funny because typically we don’t actually have snow on Christmas in Washington but I just associate Christmas movies with snow. I like how they all work together to help each other be together with their family and friends at Christmas with a great sense of giving. This is definitely a movie I’d add to your family watch list this year!
