Christmas Comes But Once a Year (1936) starring Grampy, one of Betty Boop's friends.
I just love this movie! You feel so bad for those poor little orphans at the beginning. They live in a very strange orphanage. There isn't an adult in sight and they keep a live puppy in a cuckoo clock... They also have a pretty shitty Christmas but Grampy comes and saves the day!
My sister, Misty, and I used to watch this adorable cartoon on VHS when we were little. I don't know what ever happened to it but a few years ago, I was feeling nostalgic and found out the name. I wanted to surprise my mom and sister when they came to visit for Christmas and bought a copy of it on eBay. Misty was so happy to watch it again, this time with her son Ethan. I think I saw a little tear in her eye.
If you 've never seen this, please take the time to watch this lovely little gem.
I'm so excited about Christmas!!! All my family will be together right here in Austin. We only have to drive 10 minutes down the road to my uncle Jaime's house. We have a tradition to get together on Christmas Eve and open all our gifts at midnight. I can't wait for James to see his gifts. He is so hard to shop for but I think I did pretty damn good this year.
Merry Christmas everyone!
