advent: day 22
posted by soe 2:51 am

Today’s Virtual Advent Tour host is Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings. You may know Carl from his reading challenges: the Once upon a Time Challenge in the spring and the R.I.P. (Reader’s Imbibing Peril) Challenge in the days leading up to Halloween. He’s currently running the Sci-Fi Experience, a low-key reading event celebrating science fiction, through the end of next month. I’ll stop back here tomorrow after Carl’s had a chance to publish his post and update the link.

In Carl’s honor, I’m sharing a Christmas special I remember seeing once when I was a little kid. A Cosmic Christmas was, in 1977, the first tv special from Nelvana, a Canadian company known to this day for its four decades of work in children’s animation, from the Care Bears and Ewoks cartoons of the 1980s (and the animated segment of that appalling Star Wars Holiday Special that first introduced Boba Fett) to the more recent Fairly OddParents, Jane and the Dragon, and The Magic School Bus. A Cosmic Christmas tells the story of a boy named Peter and his pet goose, Lucy, who, on Christmas Eve, attempt to share the meaning of Christmas to a trio of aliens who have landed outside their town.
