Christmas Movie Advent Countdown Suggestions: DreamWorks Ultimate Holiday Collection on Blu-Ray (Review)

(Also available on DVD for only $19.71)

If you weren't already aware...there are only 8 weeks left until Christmas.  I was just at Kohl's today and Santa was there ready to hear what the little ones want for Christmas and pose for photos, while parents took advantage of pre- Black Friday sales.  Yes, you read that right...many stores like this one are already doing holiday sales in advance of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last month, a number of high end retailers announced that they would not open the day after Thanksgiving, and I wondered how they would plan to make revenue for the holidays.  Now I know...with all these early sales and promotions.  With all the sales going on and toy catalogs from different retailers arriving at our doorstep each day, it is hard not to get into the holiday spirit.  And,when my girls aren't circling what they want for Christmas from the advertisements, they are sitting and watching some of their favorite holiday movies, trying to decide which ones they want me to wrap and number for our annual Christmas Movie Advent.

If you are looking for a new, fun family holiday tradition to start with your family this year, why not consider doing a holiday movie advent? Just like with a book advent which we also do in our house, you choose your favorite holiday titles, in this case movies, and then wrap them in festive holiday wrap.  You can let your kids help choose the movies they want to count down to Christmas with, or do it yourself and have it be a surprise for the kids.  I usually have the girls choose 6 holiday movies and I choose the other 6 movies, usually adding in a few new Christmas-themed movies, before wrapping and numbering, and placing near the Christmas tree.  Then, each night, the girls take turns, taking a wrapped movie and unwrapping it, to see which movie we will be watching that evening, as we count down to Santa's arrival.

This year, I have have a handful of new releases I will be sharing with you all, that would make for great additions to your family's holiday movie advent countdown that you may already do or want to start this year.  The first movie, I want to share with you is from Dreamworks and is  could get your started with your advent as it contains 9 full-length movies all on on Blu-ray disc.  The Ultimate Holiday Collection, which released last month from Dreamworks contains the following 9 stories, sure to delight kids and adults of all ages, as they gear up for the holidays and Santa's arrival...

Featuring 9 DreamWorks holiday favorites together for the first time!
  • Trolls Holiday
  • Shrek the Halls
  • Donkey’s Caroling Christmas-tacular
  • Merry Madagascar
  • Penguins of Madagascar in a Christmas Caper
  • Dragons Holiday: Gift of the Night Fury
  • Home for the Holidays
  • Rise of the Guardians

My girls were so excited when they saw this Blu-ray arrive at our door last week, as they have already seen these holiday movies, and LOVE them all!  They were so excited to have all these great holiday movies all on one disc, as well as have some fun bonus content included Shrek's Yule Log, 12 days of Christmas Pop-Up Book, 4 Penguins Sing-Along Music Videos and so much more!

This past weekend, my girls started watching this Ultimate Holiday Collection, trying to decide in which order they will want to see these movies.  We got to talking about adding some days to the countdown and making it longer than 12 days.  When the holidays roll around, it becomes harder and harder to narrow down our list of Christmas movies to watch, as they are all so good, and worth watching.  So, you know what, we may just have to extend our movie countdown and begin Dec. 1st, or a little earlier. :-)

Read on to learn more about the new Dreamworks Ultimate Holiday Collection now available to own on Blu-ray or DVD, and featuring 9 great holiday movies.  This is definitely one DVD/Blu-ray you will want to pick to have on hand as you count down to Christmas this year, and for years to come.
