It’s time to crack open your advent calendars at home, and it’s time for the 2nd annual No Love For Fatties Advent Calendar.
Last year, I focused on music, and this year I’m going to focus on movies. I know – totally generic but whatever. I love Christmas movies!! And more so, the classics, the originals, the super obscure ones that I grew up watching on old VHS that we taped from the tv (yeah we totally did – don’t pretend you didn’t either!). Each day, there will be a post featuring a new movie that I enjoy watching. Maybe next year I’ll do something a little more original
Please note: there will be LOTS of gifs used so if you find them annoying, you have been warned.
Today’s movie is: A Year Without Santa Claus
This movie is a little out there in terms of Christmas movies. Santa has a cold, and a backache, and gout (poor guy is just falling apart!) and he has decided that the whole world wouldn’t care if he didn’t do Christmas. I get ya, Santa. We all have bad days and days where we think we don’t matter. So Santa sends a message out to the whole world: Christmas is CANCELLED! That’s right, he just goes and cancels Christmas.
Being the doting wife that she is, Mrs. Claus is like “um heck to the no!” and sends two elves, Jingle and Jangle, out to see if they can find some Christmas cheer. I think we can all agree that with names like Jingle and Jangle, there is bound to be some trouble.
With the help of a little boy who is convinced to believe in Santa through a song, and the Miser brothers (remember them for a future post) and Mother Nature, Santa gets out of his funk and Christmas is un-cancelled.
