Thumpity, thump, thump! another Holiday Giveaway!

Being that the holidays are rapidly approaching, I thought that it would be a good idea to ‘hip’ you all to one of this year’s ‘must haves’… The Original Christmas Classics Limited Keepsake Edition.

Now I did not know this before…and quite frankly I don’t much like the thought of it…but I am freaking older than Frosty the Snowman!!! This is a ‘guy’ who I grew up with and always figured he’d been around for ages…like Santa. Now I have been told that Frosty turns 40 this year…and I turn 42…WTF!?

OK, back to the point of this post. I was sent a really cool DVD set to review and, as a member of an avid Christmas movie family, we were very excited when it arrived. Not only does this slickly packaged set have my buddy Frosty, but it features more than 4 ½ hours of holiday bliss including; Rudolph, Santa Claus is Comin to Town, The Little Drummer Boy, Frosty Returns …and several more favorites.

All of the above titles have been digitally remastered (and now include guest appearances by Alien and Jason Bourne) to enhance the picture and sound quality so that we can sit comfortably with our little ones and a big bowl of popcorn and enjoy these classics.

I liked the set so much that I asked if I could do a giveaway for another set. So there it is...Leave a comment for an entry and tweet this giveaway for another entry…you could soon be the envy of the neighborhood with your own brand-spankin-new Christmas Classic collector’s set. Deadline for entries is Sunday 11/22/09.

The story of how everyone’s favorite snowman magically came to life on Christmas Day, “Frosty the Snowman” has signified the arrival of winter since his TV debut in 1969—and he’s still melting hearts! The series remains one of the most popular animated holiday TV specials of all time. To celebrate, Classic Media is inviting kids and families to “chill out” with Frosty, Rudolph, and Santa with the ultimate holiday DVD gift set: The Original Christmas Classics Limited Keepsake Edition.

The box set contains seven of the most beloved holiday TV specials of all time, including the Rankin/Bass classics “Frosty the Snowman,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” and “The Little Drummer Boy,” among others.

Watching these iconic TV specials are part of the American holiday tradition, just like baking cookies or trimming the Christmas tree! As you begin to work on your November and December holiday-themed articles and posts, we thought it might be “cool” to include Frosty and The Original Christmas Classics DVD set.

The Original Christmas Classics: a wallet-friendly, must-have holiday gift suggestion, whether you’re 2 or 92!

The Original Christmas Classics Limited Keepsake Edition is available wherever DVDs are sold for $39.98.

I have all the Bass Rankin movies except one. Does this set happen to have "The Life and Times of Santa Claus" on it by any chance?

ZenMom said...

Oh we love all of those movies! :)

I always love at christmas time dropping everything to watch these when they come on tv.

LiteralDan said...

Dammit, I just realized I'm sure I can't qualify for this, being a fellow Hot Dad.

Am I still disqualified if I haven't posted here for an embarrassingly long time?

(My excuse is that I can barely manage to post on my own blog as we slog through the ordeal of trying to buy a house 2 hours away from here.)

TentCamper said...

Dan...you qualify...I would guess that I am the only one who does not.

the winners are chosen by Random.org so that there is no bias

Cute! My nephews would love these!

Great blog btw! I'll tweet it after I figure out how to add you guys.

peedee said...

Barefoot Dreamer said...
