It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s coming fast! A favorite of mine as a kid was the Advent Calendar. For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, Advent Calendars counted down the days until Christmas with fun little calendars. Usually hidden behind the numbers of the calendar were little toys or candy. Little gifts to have fun with before Christmas Day. With that in mind I present to you my calendar full of Christmas Joy. Every day we will knock another down the peg and share a bit of Christmas joy either in the form of a film, a theme park celebration or a special event or show. We will showcase something new and fun every day until Christmas! So get ready to unwrap and share some holiday cheer!
15 Days til Christmas-Gremlins
So Gremlins isn’t the feel good holiday movie you’d expect. In fact, it’s just the opposite. But it is a fun romp of little green goodness. The only thing Christmas about this movie is that it just so happens to take place at Christmas.
Billy gets a gift from his traveling salesman father. It’s an amazing little creature called a Mogwi. The mogwi has three rules that it must go by, or suffer the dyer consequences. Of course the first two are broken right off the bat, and the third…well it’s only a matter of time
It’s a holiday classic for those who smile every time they hear the theme song.
