When it comes to non-animated Christmas specials, narrowing the field down is difficult to do but given a choice, my favorite of all time would be 'Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer'. This was one of the first Christmas shows to appear on television from In 1948 Rudolph was a very short program lasting probably about 15 minutes. The story came from a poem written by one of the May Company Department Store executives, Robert May. Johnny Marks composed the music which was catapulted to the 'eternal music hall of fame' when it was recorded by Gene Autry who was one of the first cowboys appearing in shows popularly known as 'Westerns'.

Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer is not only enjoyable to watch but it has so many lessons in life within it. My favorite place is 'The Island of Misfit Toys' where we meet characters like Hermey, one of Santa's elves who really wants to be a dentist. Another favorite resident of this island is 'Charlie', a jack-in-the-box who considers himself a misfit because his name is not Jack. Another favorite character is Abominable Snowman whom all the other characters think is evil until Hermey, the misfit dentist, learns his secret power and by working on his teeth, disarms him. The main lesson to be learned is that there are no misfits in life because everybody is special.
