It’s a Jolly Holiday with Bert: An Appreciation Post

Whether he’s a one-man band, sidewalk chalk artist, chimney sweep, or kite seller, Bert from Mary Poppins is a happy-go-lucky guy we can’t help but love. He’s just the person you’d want to have around when you need a laugh or advice. Since we love Bert so much, we wanted to take a moment and share all the reasons why he’s so great:
