My post on Saturday about favorite holiday movies garnered a lot of attention from other bloggers, many of them shared with me their favorite movies as well. One of them – Aylee from Recovering Potter Addict said that the Muppet Family Christmas Special was the holiday movie that she loved most.
Why is that significant to me? Well, this movie first appeared on TV the year I turned 7, and I watched it with my family. I remembered it being a magical movie with all the characters that I loved as a child – the Muppets, Sesame Street, and Fraggle Rock puppets – but I hadn’t seen it for years. It was one of those movies that formed what I like to think of as a beautiful piece of my childhood, but I hadn’t seen it in so long that I’d nearly forgotten about it. Aylee shared with me a place where I could watch it, and now I’m going to share it with you.
If you’ve been wanting to watch this series, you can view it in five parts, right here on YA Book Shelf. Call it my Christmas gift to you, my readers. Call it whatever you will, but know that watching this TV special again after all these years brought a lot of smiles to my face and joy to my heart.

Hope you enjoyed watching this 80s holiday classic as much as I did! And more than anything, I hope that the holiday spirit finds you not only over the next couple of weeks, but also for the rest of the new year as well.
