It's nice to have the sounds of elves singing in the background as you wrap holiday presents! Christmas specials also free me up to get stuff done while the kids watch.For a half hour they forget that they are constantly hungry and in need of my attention. "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" will give me a chance to finish hot gluing my pine cone penguins!
