It’s Just Not Christmas Without Mickey Mouse

There aren’t too many different things that get me into the holiday spirit, but there is one mouse that does the trick every time. I’m talking about the one, the only, Mickey Mouse. After thoroughly enjoying IDW’s Mickey & Donald’s Christmas Parade, I began to think about the other holiday Mickey Mouse related things that tend to be part of my Christmas tradition. I absolutely adore, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas, and Mickey’s Christmas Carol, both from Disney.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas features three shorts, each one special in their own way: Donald Duck Stuck on Christmas, A Very Goofy Christmas, and Mickey and Minnie’s, The Gift of the Magi. Growing up, this VHS (now DVD) was a staple in our house and included just the right amount of variety to get us in the Christmas spirit. While all three are cute and entertaining, they also include some nice morals such as, treating your elders with respect, being thankful for what you have, and sacrificing for those you love.

Mickey’s Christmas Carol is exactly what it sounds like, and it is my favorite version of Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Besides, the content of the wonderfully meaningful tale, you get to see a bunch of your favorite classic Disney characters play the roles in the book. Some of the characters include Scrooge McDuck who plays, you guessed it…Scrooge, Mickey as Bob Cratchit, Donald as Scrooge’s nephew Fred, Daisy Duck as Scrooge’s first love Isabelle, Minnie Mouse as a silent Mrs. Cratchit, Goofy as the Ghost of Jacob Marley, Jiminy Cricket as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Willie the Giant (from Fun and Fancy Free) as the Ghost of Christmas Present, and Pete as the Ghost of Christmas Future.

With all that said, I hope you’ll tune in to some of these great Disney films this season. There are a wide variety of other Christmas and Holiday themed Disney shorts out there, and most of them are pretty great. Pluto’s Christmas Tree happens to be a particularly funny one. Check that out here, and share some of your favorite Christmas traditions in the comments below.

Santa Claus will be delivering puppies to people’s houses on Christmas

Looks like Santa Claus is taking a rather unusual form this year: That of the Coastal Humane Society.

The animal shelter has announced it’s plan to bring any of it’s numerous adoptable pets to the home of their new families on Christmas Day, hand-delivered by none other than Santa himself.

The Costal Human Society is looking to send its latest group of rescued animals, 35 puppies from Blairsville, Georgia, home for the holidays to loving families. So much so, that they’re promising to make the rescues a little extra special: The shelter will deliver the pet to the home of the adopter on Christmas Day, dressed as Santa or one of his elves.

According to the shelter’s Facebook page, the special promotion begins on Saturday, December 19 when the shelter opens at noon. Adopters can take home the pet then and there if they are approved for adoption, or sign up to have a special delivery made by the good folks from the North Pole on Christmas Day.

The shelter will also offer Christmas Eve pick-up if adopters would like to take home their pet earlier.

While they are thrilled to be offering the “Home for the Holidays Delivery Service” and hope many adopters will take advantage of it, officials from the shelter do warn that “giving a pet as a gift is not always in the best interest of the animal and stress that this special is only for pets that will live in the same household as the person who arranges for the delivery.”

But if your household is stable enough to welcome an animal in desperate need of a home, by all means go for it!

P.S. If you’re not a dog person, but still want to get in on the Christmas magic, worry not — Santa will also be delivering cat and other small animal to good little girls and boys.

lady gaga

Lady Gaga and Jessie J got into the Christmas spirit this weekend, with a few festive party hair ideas we’re just dying for more people to start trying.

Take Gaga’s look for example. Wouldn’t you love to see Brenda from accounts working that at the office party?

Judging by that picture however, it seems to be ‘one of those trends’ men won’t get. Surprising, eh?

Then we have Jessie J’s take on the classic red Christmas tree bauble. A slicked Marcel wave heavily coated in bright red glitter, we’d like to see how many washes this one takes to spell the end of glittery pillows.
Thanks for reading~Merry Christmas to all of you in advance!

Santa Claus visits Havre de Grace

 

Havre de Grace’s Christmas parade was rained out Friday, but city residents braved the cold Saturday evening to see the city’s downtown Christmas tree lit and, most importantly, for the children present, visit Santa Claus costume.

“Welcome to our beautiful city!” Mayor Wayne Dougherty told Santa and Mrs. Claus as they prepared to light the tree at St. John and Washington streets.123456

Once the brightly-colored lights came on, Santa and Mrs. Claus proceeded up Washington Street – which police officers had closed for foot traffic – to Santaland, where children sat on Santa’s lap and told him what they wanted for Christmas.

Santa was followed by a gaggle of excited children up Washington Street. The trees on each side were strung with lights, and downtown businesses were open for holiday visitors to the city.

Children and their parents lined up along Washington Street outside Santaland and waited to see Jolly Old St. Nicholas.

Members of Maryland Faerie Festival group of Darlington, who were dressed as mythical characters, entertained the children as they waited, by blowing bubbles and telling Christmas legends.

One member of the group was dressed as Krampus, a character who is found in Germanic and Austrian holiday mythology.

Krampus, also known as the “dark companion” of Santa Claus, or St. Nicholas, is a horned devil, who carries a switch in his hand and a basket on his back to deal with the children on Santa’s naughty list.

“That’s where Krampus comes in, because Santa doesn’t know what to do with the list of bad little girls and boys,” the costumed Krampus said.

He said the devil would punish children with his switch, or “if you’ve been really bad it’s into the back of the basket with you.”

The children would be carried away in the basket, and could be transformed into Krampus’ minions.

“Maintain the peace, do the right thing, Krampus doesn’t have any business with you,” he said.

Timothy Corbin, of Havre de Grace, dressed up as Waldo, from the “Where’s Waldo” book series. The reader must find Waldo, wearing thick black glasses and a red-and-white striped shirt and cap, in a large crowd of people in the pages.

Waldo, as portrayed by Corbin, could easily be found among the costumed characters entertaining children waiting for Santa Saturday.

Corbin has also appeared in his Waldo costume at city events such as First Fridays and the Graw Days Festival.

“In the books he can be anywhere he wants, so I thought, ‘Why can’t I?’ ” Corbin said.

Natasha and Jermaine Lowery ,of  Havre de Grace, brought their children Azareya, age 7, and Xavier, age 10, for their first visit with Santa.

“It’s a good outing,” Jermaine Lowery said. “Everybody gets to come out and appreciate Santa.”

He and his wife appreciated the Christmas decorations downtown.such as Sika Deer Mascot Adult Costume.

“They really have it festive down here,” Natasha Lowery said. “I really like it.”
