Yes, We Have a Christmas Special On the Television

Okay, there is a Christmas special on TV right now. We didn’t know it was a Christmas special; Junior actually said “Why is a Halloween movie on now?” That was a good guess as well, because we are watching…

Casper’s Haunted Christmas.

Oh ya, you know it! Of course, I’m trying to work on my Nano Novel and not get distracted by shiny things, and I hear one of the ghosts tell Casper he is banished to “Christmassachusetts” which, it turns out, is actually Kriss, Mass (they showed a wooden sign). Does that mean I need to make this my new favorite holiday movie? I think Randy Travis sang the theme song, by the way. So far there have been a couple of funny in-jokes too. But I cannot watch the whole thing right now. I’m going to have to wait for another showing to enjoy the subtle nuances. I’m guessing this will be on again and again on Cartoon Network.

(One of the characters is named “Holly Jollimore.” I actually knew a guy with that last name…I think he wrote for one of the local papers.) Oh, and by the way Kriss, MA is somewhere in Central MA based on a map they flashed on the screen. I’m going to pretend it’s Leominster. Because I can.
