Okay, this has nothing to do with Christmas…but I was so excited about this discovery I made today that I just had to share it with my readers.
You can watch the incomparable Danny Kaye in his classic movie Hans Christian Andersen in full length for free right here on your computer.
The movie is 95 minutes and 57 seconds long, so make yourself comfortable (unfortunately, they’ve thrown in a brief commercial every now and then). If you or your kids haven’t seen this movie, you’re all in for a real treat. It’s a fictitious biography of Hans Christian Andersen, the famous Danish writer of fairy-tales, featuring several of his stories set to song and a ballet performance of The Little Mermaid (as a kid, I always liked the Ugly Duckling song the best).
Consider this my early Christmas present to you ;-)
As I did last year, I’ll be begin in earnest the day after Thanksgiving…and continue all the way to Christmas Eve.
