One of the best things about the holiday season sharing traditions and making new memories with loved ones. My family is still young, so we are making new traditions of our own that hopefully we will share for many years to come. For starters, we make decorating the Christmas tree a family event. Hot chocolate (with marshmallows, of course!) is served and pajamas are worn as we relive the memories of each ornament placed on the tree. After the tree is decorated, we put on a holiday themed movie and spend the evening together (last year we watched Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas, remember that one?).
This Tuesday, November 16th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment debuts its first Blu-ray™ 3D release with the unique interpretation of Charles Dickens’ beloved tale, A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carrey. While my children are a bit young for this holiday classic, families with tweens and teens would love it! Carrey plays multiple characters including the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come in this comical, touching, and sometimes eerie movie. From the press release:
“From Walt Disney Pictures comes the magical retelling of Charles Dickens’ beloved tale – Disney’s A Christmas Carol, the high-flying, heartwarming adventure for the whole family. When three ghosts take penny-pinching Scrooge on an eye-opening journey, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas – but he must act on it before it’s too late. Complete with spirited bonus features, this exhilarating and touching Disney classic is destined to be part of a family holiday tradition, adding sparkle and heart to all Christmases yet to come.”
