Christmas Eve on Sesame Street
This was ALWAYS a part of my Christmas celebration from the time I was a wee little Sunshine. I love every part of it! Even when I got older - our local PBS channel would play it on Christmas Eve and I would watch it as I put the finishing touches on Christmas preparations. I can't tell you the amount of gifts I've wrapped with Big Bird in the background.
Then, one year, they replaced it with "Elmo Saves Christmas". Oh sure, Elmo might be cute but he's no Big Bird. I was SO distressed by this massive betrayal of my Christmas tradition that I *ahem* seem to have mentioned it to a few people - a few HUNDRED times because the next Christmas season I received at least a dozen copies of Christmas Eve on Sesame Street!
