Nineteen: rocking horse


Do people/children/equestrian lovers even have rocking horses any more? Either way, I couldn’t find one, but was able to give you my favourite pair of ‘rocking’ horses. I have two Christmas films that I watch every year without fail: Miracle on 34th Street and The Muppet’s Christmas Carol.

Every other adaptation of A Christmas Carol is…grim. As I’ve mentioned before – who wants a Scrooge hat? Accusations against Victorian industrialism aside, sorry Dickens, but ghosts? Honestly. Tsk.

So The Muppets instead take all the best bits, emphasise them puppet-stylee, add in a cute rabbit and there you have it, pure Christmas joy. Getting back to the horses I promised: skip to 1:15, and all will be revealed.
