Every time I get sick it’s at the worst time. From minor issues like the dental problems this year delaying me to last year’s medical crisis ruining most of a year when I planned to make a big push, it’s always delays, delays, delays. This year’s Captain Yuletide is held up and I’m hoping to at least have it done by the end of the month, which will also be the end of the year, but we’ll have to see how that goes. I didn’t plan to alternate between Christmas comic and Christmas video but that seems to be the trend.
Last year I even wrote and recorded the review I planned to do, the Rankin Bass version of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, my favorite Christmas special. But by the time I was able to edit it felt kind of pointless and so I didn’t. Instead I saved it for this year…and even then I didn’t get it edited for Christmas eve! So here it is Christmas day. When I should have the comic. The question I wanted to explore going into this review was why the special was not only so special (no pun intended) to me but why it is the definitive version for many, most of us not having read the original book (which I would really love to do someday). So that’s how I’m looking at this Christmas classic. Enjoy and I hope your Christmas was a happy one, even if you didn’t celebrate the holiday.
