This was the biggest drag of not having a VCR or DVD players in those days. We were only able to see, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and more only ONCE A YEAR! My kids freaked out when I told them that. They would ask, "you had no way at all to watch those shows more than once"? Oh no, we had to make sure we were in front of the tv on time to watch it and you didn't get another chance.
That is probably why, as an adult, I play them so much and watch them over and over. We didn't have that privilege when we were kids.
