Storyline

Everyone on Sesame Street is cheerful (except Oscar the Grouch, of course) because it's Christmas Eve, but arguably no one is more excited then red, furry, little Elmo, who is determined to stay up all night and meet Santa Claus. Big Bird is saddened that Mr. Snuffleupagus is going to Cincinnati to visit his grandmother for Christmas, but he assures him he'll be back the day after. Elmo does manage this year, but is surprised when Santa gets stuck in the chimney. Elmo pulls him out, and he is frustrated at Lightning, a fast-footed young reindeer who hopes to pull Santa's sleigh one day, hiding in his bag of toys, which made it so big it couldn't fit through the chimney. After scolding him, Santa explains to Elmo that when he pulled him out of the chimney, he saved Christmas and offers him a magic snow globe which gives him three wishes (he picked it over a pink bear). After wishing for a glass of water,he wishes it would be Christmas every day. Suddenly, all the businesses are ... Written by Bloggers!

I love it!
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alright well I am 13 today and I got this movie around Christmas when I was 3 being elmo obsessed and I watched it every Christmas with my family. I love it. It is just so awesome. I used to love the songs and sing them all the time. Christmas is way better with Elmo. I loved the reindeer. I always thought that he was so cute. I also loved how elmo got the moobunny at the end. I thought that is was really funny and how one of the elves wore the mickey mouse ears because they wanted to go to Florida. And Grover with the Christmas trees and how after all of the tress are gone he uses a coat hanger and the sign. The same man kept coming back. I alo love the Easter Bunny with the eggs. Overall awesome Christmas movie.
