I've seen dozens of Christmas specials and only two of them warm my heart and make me think of that excited feeling I got as a child. One is a Charlie Brown Christmas. The other is Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too. Now the reason that this special is my favorite is simply because I'm a bigger Pooh fan than a Peanuts fan. But there's also a reason this special is such a classic. Most specials are pretty clear in teaching that Christmas isn't about what we get but what we give or who we spend it with, I think Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too teaches that message the best way. In usual Pooh fashion, it doesn't have to stop the story to explain why Christmas is better with loved ones. It simply embeds the message in the very sweet story. Pooh and his friends are some of the best role models when it comes to friendship and caring for one another despite their differences. Children can get a lot out of this special and for nostalgic adults, it may just bring a tear to your eye.
