Christmas Movies in October

Remember when Christmas movies were a once a year thing? 

When I was a kid I looked forward to Santa Clause is Coming to Town and Frosty the Snowman coming on television.  

Today, I don't know that the excitement for those movies is there for kids as much because the movies are available year around.  I just heard the song Frosty the Snowman coming from the living room and Scot and D were watching a segment of that movie movie on YouTube. 

Okay guys, it's not even Halloween yet.

I admit, though, I may have started the Christmas movie thing.  Yesterday I started singing, "Put one foot in front of the other...and soon you'll be walking out the door."  I was trying to get D out of bed and that song came to me. 

I couldn't remember what movie that song was from and went to look it up on YouTube. It's from Santa Clause is Coming to Town.  So I guess that's what started the desire for Christmas videos.   At least it got D out of bed, but for now I think we'll ban Christmas videos so that there will be some excitement for them when December comes.
