The first time I watched “Scrooged” was actually pretty cool. My parents had rented the movie the day it was released on VHS back in 1989 and I snuck down stairs before school and watched it. I laughed so hard. The movie is a Christmas classic, at least it is around here. We watch it every Christmas.
Yes, I did see Santa Claus The Movie in theaters and yes, it changed my outlook on Santa Claus. He wasn’t some jolly fat guy in a red coat. He was a toy maker that already had it in his heart to give the toys as gifts at Christmas time to children. He was chosen by elves and elders for his talent as a toy maker and his capacity to love all the children of the world. The movie really came to life for me when it hit home video for the first time. My parents actually invested in something that Christmas. It was a Sharp VHS Tape Player and Recorder and a copy of… you guessed it, Santa Claus: The Movie.
