Merry Christmas! And Don’t Put a Hole In Ma’s Washtub!

Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas

Christmas time means one big thing for me… Christmas Movies!

Growing up, I always loved Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. How could you not? That crazy animation. The elf who wanted to become a dentist. The scary (yet lovable) Bumble! Pure timeless awesomeness.

And then there’s one of the funniest films of all time, A Christmas Story. There’ve been a lot of great ones over the years. Christmas Vacation. A Charlie Brown Christmas. Elf. All good stuff. But the #1 Christmas movie that will never ever be topped is one I loved watching as a kid. It’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas!

Allie thinks I’m nuts. Ryan was bored out of his mine when we watched it last year. And Jason won’t even talk to me when I bring it up. My old roommate Mike and my cousins are about the only people I know who have my back when it comes to Emmet.

So in hopes of gaining more support, here’s a few tunes from the Jug Band.

If you own Emmet Otter, go pop it in the DVD player right now and get down with the gang! If you don’t own it yet (yet being the operative word), Amazon’s got a slew of versions available to whet your Muppet appetite!


Merry Christmas!
