Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

This time of year it's a tradition for my family to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. My little sister, Margo, gets excited to hear the story again, even though it makes her sad- me too! My heart aches for Rudolph when he's ridiculed by his friends for being different. But, he and his new pal wind up on a grand adventure and experience things they'd never thought possible. This holiday classic inspired our theme this week, so enjoy the full movie!


Don't forget to visit our friends hosting us today! Enter to win a signed hardcover of THE SECRET FILES OF FAIRDAY MORROW.

  1. In all the years I've watched this story, I never thought about Rudolph being bullied. But he was. Back in those days I don't recall hearing the word "bully." It might have been and I just didn't pay attention. Rudolph's story is a great example of bullying. To all the kids and adults that have been ridiculed and made fun of, I hope for peace and love.
    Will watch the movie this afternoon in my relaxing time. Thanks.

  2. My son watched it last week, and really liked it. Though the talking snowman at the beginning weirded him out a bit, lol!

  3. Its such a classic, isn't it? But so true, Rudolph is bullied. Great lesson though on perseverance and how he eventually came home and saved Christmas :)

  4. I think the story of the reindeer is perfect to teach little children something about bullying while still keeping with the festive theme! I have never seen a movie which focuses solely on Rudolph's story though, if you can believe that! I'm always looking for more Christmas movies and the majority of the ones I watch are always kids ones (their the best for this season) so I will check this out ^.^

  5. Yes, poor little Rudolph! I do feel sorry for him, but he comes out a winner in the end.

  15. I don't remember ever watching this although I'm sure I did when I was younger. I've been seeing commercials of Rudolph playing on Disney channel for a while now so I might just end up watching it this year (:

  19. The kids watch this in school each year, I think. I remember watching all these sorts of movies as a kid, but we rarely do these days. We'll be watching Home Alone tomorrow after we drive around to look at Christmas lights, though!

    1. Shannon- I love Home Alone too! Definitely a great movie to watch this time of year. :)

  20. It's been a while since we've watched it. Our daughter was a big fan when she was younger. I think Charlie Brown Christmas is her favorite, though.
