Blogmas day 18 | The muppets christmas carol review

Hello lovelies,
Again I'm really sorry this post is so late. Ive spent the day making mini gingerbread houses for a bake that I'm taking into work on Sunday, its very stressful but they're all done now. So today I'm going to be revving one of my favourite films, the Muppet's Christmas carol.




I have loved this film since I was a little girl and I still find myself indulging in it each and every year. Here's what it says online about the film "The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets -- Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle -- weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases -- past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness". Now I'm sure you were all aware of the story but the normal one really doest interest me, I'm quite childish and the thought of the Muppet's and Michael Caine fills me with a lot of Christmas joy.


So I'm going to chat about each section, so the different ghosts that visits him through the night. The ghost of Christmas past always annoyed me when I was little. I just found that girl really annoying and I honestly don't know why, I think the story of his past is so sad but I really love the music that involved in this part of the film. The ghost of Christmas present is my favourite. I love this ghost so much because he's just such a friendly and lovable character. I love the songs he sings and I think its at this point that Ebeneser starts to see the joy in Christmas and maybe starts to change his ways. One of my favourite songs is it feels like Christmas, this is the perfect song to get me in the festive mood and I find myself playing this every year without fail. The ghost of Christmas yet to come scared me so much as a child and if I'm honest, still scares me a little now. Its just because theres no speech from him. Just a black cloak that hides his face and a slow walk that just sends shivers down my spine. The saddest part of the film for me is when he is crying over his own grave after seeing that no one came to his funeral and that no one cared that he had died.


I love it at the end when he goes round to the house where tiny Tim lived and saw that he was still alive, everyone comes together for Christmas and there are even more songs. I think the soundtrack to this film is amazing and I like to play this on spotify, it just reminds me a lot of my childhood and will always be a Christmas classic.

Lots of love,
Chloe xxx
