Arthur’s Perfect Christmas


I love Arthur. It was one of the best shows of my childhood, and I can still watch it today and be entertained and educated. “Arthur’s Perfect Christmas” is absolutely amazing, because it covers a wide range of winter holidays, not just Christmas. Arthur and his family celebrate Christmas with the family, although Dad decides to cook an “authentic” Christmas dinner instead of the usual turkey. Muffy throws a big Christmas party, but Francine doesn’t go because her family is celebrating Hanukkah. George celebrates St. Lucia’s Day with his Swedish relatives, and the Brain works on Christmas because as he explains “Kwanzaa doesn’t start until tomorrow.” Buster knows his mom feels bad about Christmas because his dad’s not around anymore, but he assures her that Christmas doesn’t even have to be a big deal. They can celebrate their own holiday, “Baxter Day!” Binky and his parents volunteer at a homeless shelter, and even Mr. Ratburn gets into the holiday spirit, grading papers excitedly and planning for a new year. I love this special because it shows the diversity of the holidays, and that we all don’t need to celebrate the same thing to share in the joy and spirit of the season. It’s fun and entertaining, but also heartwarming and educational. If you’ve never seen it, stop what you’re doing right now and go watch it. I promise you, you’ll be glad you did. :)
