A Muppets Christmas Movie Night

It’s the holiday season and we had a blast for our #movienightfriday with A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa Movie and A Muppets Christmas Carol for a double feature, both on Disney +.

While we didn’t’t have a long lesson, we did read The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. We had previously watched the Mickey Christmas Carol and the Jim Carrey Christmas Carol versions which we compared this too.

We had so much holiday fun with this one, and we hope you did too.
