'Tis The Season! The Original Christmas Specials Collection: Deluxe Edition Available Now - Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.



Do you have a favorite Christmas movie you like to watch each year with your family?  For me, it is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, with The Little Drummer Boy coming in a close second.  These and three other timeless holiday films are now available all on one Blu-ray or DVD, just in time for the holiday season.  

Thanks to the folks at Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, fans of the Original Christmas Specials, which many of us who grew up in the 70' and 80's used to watch with our families, sitting around the television, will finally be able to add this deluxe edition collection to their holiday movies collection, and share with their families.  

While I know there have many countless holiday specials released since my childhood, I can't help but be partial these early classics.  Yes, the animation may not be the "wow" you get with all the new movies released today, but these classics, are just that...classics.  And, they are the perfect movies to share with your whole family during the upcoming holiday season and for years to come.  You don't have to worry about swearing or inappropriate language in these wholesome movies.  And, don't be surprised, if your kids wanting to watch them over and again, like you used to do.  :-)  I shared this new Blu-ray/DVD release with my girls over the weekend, and while they have seen one or two of the classic holiday films on television before, it was nice to have all 5 on on disc.  It make for a truly magical evening, with the Christmas tree in the backdrop, with snow falling outside. What a way to end the week.

This is definitely one of those must-own holiday DVDs, that you will enjoy year after year with your family. You grew up watching these movies with your parents and siblings, and now you can do the same with your children.  Read on to learn how you can enter to win a copy of the new The Original Christmas Specials Collection: Deluxe Edition to share with your family this holiday season.
