Christmas Classics of Generation X



There is a whole set of Christmas Classics that Generation X remembers watching in their growing up years....





We got this keepsake set a few years back that includes the holiday specials along with the music that goes with them.  It's the time of year to take this out again.






Images I remember from my Generation X childhood....






This is the 50th anniversary of Rudolph and the US Postal Service is issuing stamps with the characters from the holiday special.  Hallmark is selling 'itty bittys' which are small, stuffed figurines of the characters and they will donate $1 to Toys for Tots for each one you buy. 






This set includes Rudolph, the Frosty the Snowman set, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, The Little Drummer Boy, and one I'd never seen before getting this box set: Cricket on the Hearth.

Very cool. I love retro-esque holiday specials and it looks like you have a few entries on these - I'm going to scroll through your blog and look at the other ones too. Thanks for the nostalgia.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, James. You'll also find a couple of other entries here about Peanuts/Charlie Brown holiday specials and I plan to do more in the future. I can't think of anything that makes me more nostalgic than a holiday special from the growing up years of Gen X. Merry Christmas.
