Posts Tagged ‘A Christmas Fantasy Parade’

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I LOVE the holidays. As I mentioned before I start in earnest on Thanksgiving, and chug along all through Christmas and straight into New Years.

There are numerous things I love about the holiday season — the sights, the smells, the snow, music, movies etc…and I thought this would be a good place to share my favorites this month.

First up: The Disney Christmas Parade. A longtime Christmas morning staple while opening presents and eating breakfast with the family, being so close means now I can go see the parade in person. Minus the extra characters and the fabulous celebrities and the sometimes-hokey commentary from lovely morning news anchors and/or Ryan Seacrest. But still. I LOVE this parade.

Here’s my “short” version of the parade, through pictures!

It starts off with a Clara-esque music box and giant teddy bear welcoming everyone, who are followed by…

The tin soldiers!

I love these guys…and Pluto behind them!

Mrs. Claus, reading all the letters to Santa

A very cheery elf, one of many along the parade route:

Dancing snowflakes!

Of course snowflakes lead to snow on the ground, and that leads to…

Adorable baby snowmen!

It’s not Christmas without Goofy and Max building a ginormous gingerbread house.

And then the princesses arrive! I’m a big fan of the stepsisters, who kick things off — I love their flouncy dresses.

Gepetto puts his toy-making skills to work:

The 7 dwarves are a little out of place, but they bring a really pretty gem-stone tree with them!

I love her swish-y dress.

They save the best for last though…

Have any of you seen the parade in person? Do you watch it on Christmas morning like me?

Coming up tomorrow, in Christmas-y and TV related awesomeness — GLEE does Christmas tonight! Yay!
