There are many other good ones, and I’ll probably watch those as well, but these are the ones that definitely have to happen every year. I have each of these on a VHS tape I’ve been plugging into my VCR every December since 1997. Yup, they’re all on one tape I recorded off TV that year. I’ve enjoyed reliving my childhood this year with my son, who now understands a little bit about the holiday (or can at least recognize Santa or a snowman).
I’ve also introduced him to the lost art of fast-forwarding through commercials when watching old VHS tapes on TV.
