Who didn’t love the movies every 8 pm on Disney channel? I particularly loved the Christmas ones that aired through all of December, making me even more excited for the holidays as a kid. But the buddies franchise was one of my favorites, especially the “Santa buddies” movie!
The movie is about a group of golden retrievers that go on a journey to remind us about the true spirit of Christmas when Santa Claus and Santa Paws notice the magical Christmas icicle melting. Such phenomenon occurs because nobody seems to believe in Christmas anymore, forcing Santa Paws to embark into an adventure with the 4 other golden retriever puppies who also lack Christmas spirit. Budderball, B-Dawg, Rosebud, Buddha and Mudbud adorably save the day for us all, showing all about how Christmas should be like.
So, if you need a reminder of what Christmas is all about, or if you just want to dive more into the holiday spirit, the “Santa Buddies” film is definitely one of my top choices! It will make you smile and cheer, whilst also teaching a valuable lesson. It’s even available on YouTube!
Merry Christmas, everybody!
