The Santa Clause is one of our favorite holiday movies. We grew up chuckling at Bernard, wishing we could go to the North Pole, and generally enjoying our newfound understanding of legal jargon (it’s clause with an “e,” people). If you loved The Santa Clause like we did, you may have also felt some of these things:
The second scene made us realize for the first time that somebody would lie about traffic as an excuse (which we may have done in our adult lives).
We didn’t know what ossobuco was then… and we still do not. We do know that we don’t want to eat it on Christmas Eve, though.
We listened to the score to make gift-wrapping extra magical. Our favorite song is the one that plays when they go to the North Pole for the first time.
We had no idea what it meant when Scott said, “When I wake up, I’m gettin’ a CAT scan,” but we laughed anyway.
We thought Judy was the prettiest, most magical elf ever. She worked on her hot cocoa recipe for 1,200 years!
We used (and still sometimes use) this as an argument: Seeing isn’t believing. Believing is seeing.
We always wanted to order this:
We looked forward to the day our car would have a CD: cookie/cocoa dispenser.
We had such a crush on these “elves with attitude” when we were little.
This is exactly how we felt when Scott dropped the Weenie Whistle and the Mystery Date Game and everyone realized he really is Santa.
If you want to relive all this fun, don’t miss The Santa Clause on Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas!
