Mickey Mouse: Merry and Scary Review
Now that summer is officially over, my family is gearing up for all the upcoming holidays. We celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas — I love them all, but my kids feel like they must choose a favorite.

I think Haiden and Piper have had serious discussions about their favorite holiday every fall since they both could talk.
Merit is given to treats, presents, Santa, candy, and costumes, along with so many finer details that I never even dreamed were important to my kids (Like the one time my son told me he loved Halloween “because of all the kitties.” It took a bit for me to understand he was talking about black cat decorations!).

But one thing that never needs to be debated is the excitement over the wonderful television specials that are shown for each holiday.
There were times in my own childhood when I remember being so disappointed to miss some or all of those once-a-year programs, and I'm so happy that streaming HD, DVDs and Blu-rays have made that a thing of the past!
Even better than on-demand holiday specials, Disney has done something great for us – they put two holidays on one DVD for us to enjoy. Mickey Mouse: Merry and Scary is now available on DVD for the entire family to enjoy!
Are you thinking it's exactly the right time for a Halloween special but way too early to watch anything related to Christmas? If you are, you're wrong 🙂 Both specials are cute and immensely entertaining. Once you watch the “scary” one you'll want to watch “merry” immediately!
