Merry Christmas! Or should I say, Blissemas!
I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite holiday movies. Now, I know what you're thinking - you've already heard all about A Wonderful Life. But that's not what I'm talking about. Nope.
I'm talking about this:
That's right - A Claymation Christmas Special, and yes, those are the California Raisins.
My favorite part is actually an ongoing thing. One of the co-hosts Rex, a rather smart T-rex, futilely attempts to clarify the true pronunciation and meaning of the term 'wassail', featured in the Christmas carol Here We Come A-Wassailing. As the show progresses, Rex is dismayingly accosted by different groups singing the song, though each version is lyrically incorrect.
Finally, near the end, a truck carrying townsfolk arrives on the scene, and they are singing the correct version of the carol, validating Rex's theories much to his delight. After one of the townies explains the real meaning of wassailing—going around the neighborhood singing Christmas Carols, and getting treats and cordials, the entire cast performs Here We Come A-wassailing, and then We Wish You a Merry Christmas as the end credits roll.
It's full of some absolutely hilarious characters, too. There's walruses and penguins doing ice ballet, The California Raisins, of course, the three wise men have singing camels, and The Carol of the Bells is performed by bells who smack themselves in the heads to get sound. It's just really, really great fun!
Speaking of great fun, for my prize today I'm offering up a free pdf copy of my lovely little m/m Christmas Themed story, "The Best Kind of Prize."
