We think that we might highlight this holiday special on a yearly basis, and you know why?  Because it is an utterly classic, it is an encapsulation of all that is right about this holiday, from being with family to celebrating hope to digging into rare Who-roast-beast, to the knowledge that toys (Pop guns! And bicycles! Roller skates! Drums! Checkerboards! Tricycles! Popcorn! And plums!) don't make the holiday but do make it better.  It is about decorating (even dogs) and happiness.  It is about your heart growing until it is larger than average (but not in a deadly way).  The book may be dedicated to Teddy Owens, but the tale is for all of us.  Watch it tonight and go to sleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in your head.
