25 Days of Holiday Classics: Shrek the Halls: Day 12

Shrek the Halls (2007) is a holiday TV movie special. My nephews absolutely love it and I like it a lot too. It's cute and it's funny. Shrek is celebrating his first ever Christmas with Fiona and the family. Having never celebrated Christmas before, he's not sure what to do. He finds a book that is an idiot's guide to Christmas. Shrek follows the book in his own ogre-like way and prepares the house for Christmas. However, Donkey and Shrek and Fiona's other friends show up to join them for Christmas. Shrek freaks out at them when they show up because they are all over the house and telling him how he should do things. All he wants is to give Fiona and his kids the best Christmas ever, but he doesn't realize that it's not about the things. It's about much more than that, like being with the ones that you love and being appreciative of the life that you have. Will Shrek be able to uncover the true meaning of Christmas?

 I've posted a little clip from Shrek the Halls. It's really cute. Puss in Boots is telling his version of the Night Before Christmas.

I think they already played it on TV this year, too. :( I wanted to watch it again. The DVD is a rip off. 30 minutes and they are charging $15.49 for it on a discount? I don't think so.

Yeah, Walgreens is selling Charlie Brown's Christmas for 18.99 when you can watch it on You Tube for free.
