It is eight weeks until Christmas and we are excited! Monkey and Mouse are not bothered about Halloween and although we will have a great bonfire night, Christmas will be the next big thing in our house. I have started my shopping and we have started picking the Christmas DVDs off the shelf to watch.
On 2nd November ‘On Angel Wings’ (which was shown on BBC one last Christmas) will be released on DVD and Digital download; it is a lovely animated short film and we were lucky enough to have a sneak preview and it really kick started the Christmas Feeling.
“The story begins on a present day Christmas night. Rachel is eight and for the first time she is allowed to join her brothers and sister to visit their Grandfather Amos, as he carries out his annual ritual of a night in the hills, where he worked as a young shepherd boy.
Grandfather is delighted to see the children and a special bond is established between himself and Rachel. Like her, he was the youngest and was always getting in the way, struggling to do things better, fighting to be believed in. He tells them how she reminds him of a magical night and proceeds to recount how he was flown by the Angel Gabriel to become the first visitor to the newly-born Christ child, the Virgin Mary and Joseph”
Monkey and Mouse are really getting into the Christmas swing of things and were more than happy to sit down and watch a Christmassy themed DVD. Monkey stared at it throughout and said that he thought It was a really nice story! Mouse loved it and said it was amazing!
I loved that it kept their attention whilst I made tea and that they were both smiley after it, it is definitely a hit as they have asked to watch it again! It will be staying in the Christmas section of our films for quite a while to come I think!
