A Frozen Christmas Dance: Thank You Santa is one of many animated films that showcase Christmas time in Sunnyville, where a community of animals live harmoniously among a magical setting of giant lollipops and cupcakes scattered around their magical, sunny town. In this movie, Santa and Mittens are finally able to relax with the hard work of Christmas morning behind them, so they go for a walk to relax and catch up with their friends in town. Little do they know – they have surprises awaiting them!
Between Santa’s and Mittens’ visits with their friends, they break out into dance with the other characters as a variety of catchy motivational songs play, while all of Sunnyville engages in a dance party. These interludes are a large portion of the show, but Santa and the others get several chances throughout to communicate moral messages about doing good and loving others. In this endearing movie they highlight gratitude and discuss what it means to be grateful.
Santa and Mittens are surprised on all of their encounters, as friend after friend approaches them to say thank you for all they do – for all of the care, gifts, and times that Santa and Mittens think of others – they are most grateful, and they tell them with their words and their own special gifts. Many of them have unique and creative ideas of ways to show their gratitude. This film about being thankful is a wonderful opportunity to sing and dance with children while discussing the important messages about appreciating and loving others.
