Musical Monday~ Claymation Carol of the Bells

My mom used to record every holiday special that ever came on tv. I remember she would always be sitting in front of the VCR just waiting for a show to start so she could hit that record button. Oh, how far we've come since then! We didn't have much money back then, so we didn't have any cable channels, and renting a video was a rare treat. All year long we were entertained with Christmas movies mom taped, and the funny thing is, I loved them all! When my husband and I started the tradition of watching holiday movies with our girls, the first one I knew I wanted to buy was Claymation Christmas. It was such a favorite with great carols and the California Raisins. Remember those guys? Whatever happened to them? When we sat down to watch it a few years back, it wasn't as great as I remembered. Actually, almost the whole video sucked and my kids thought I was an idiot for making them sit through it. BUT, there was one skit on there that was my favorite back then, and still is to this day. It's the only reason we continue to pop that dvd in year after year. It's the Carol of the Bells clip that started my love of that song, and makes me giggle every time I watch it.


Today (when I get off my butt) I will be linking up with Joyce at Catch My Words for Musical Monday.

Have you ever seen the entire Claymation Christmas?
