A Frozen Christmas Dance: Party Like A Turkey is an animated film that showcases Christmas Eve in Sunnyville, where a community of animals live harmoniously among a magical setting of giant lollipops and cupcakes scattered around their beautiful sunny town. In this movie Santa and Mittens the reindeer investigate what snow is made of. As they visit the town’s school, they ask the students if they know what snow is made of, and they all have funny answers, such as left-over Styrofoam, and some think it snows if you wiggle your fingers.
Santa, Mittens, and the children break out into dance outside in the snow, to a variety of catchy and motivational songs. The students then agree to help solve this mystery, and he and Mittens set off to ask certain townsfolk what they may know about snow. They talk to Lovely, the ambassador of Valentine’s Day, which falls in the middle of winter, and they visit and ask others for help, always stopping for a dance interlude; these are a large portion of the show, but Santa and the others get several chances throughout to talk about how it’s always good to ask questions because it’s how we learn, and that there is nothing better than using your mind. Santa and Mittens take a trip to Happyville in their search, but they continue to get mistaken information about what snow is made of, so they head back to Sunnyville and ask Sunny the sun, who explains a bit about the atmosphere.
They eventually find their answers from the students themselves, who have spent time learning about this, and the message is highlighted that going to school is very important as well as sharing what we learn with one another. This informative and fun film is a wonderful opportunity to sing and dance with children while discussing the value of learning and sharing what we know.
