Caroling, Caroling Now We Go

Hallmark’s Winter Fun with Snoopy series has attempted to mix in Christmas activities along with general winter activities.  It’s been a few years since we saw something related to Christmas, but that changed with the 2016 addition to the series.

You see, this year, Snoopy and Woodstock are going caroling.  They are both wearing red scarves, and Snoopy is wearing a red hat to match.  He’s also holding a green book that says “Christmas Carols” on the cover.  And in one of those touches at I just love from Hallmark, when you turn the ornament around, you’ll see music on the pages of the book.  This is especially impressive since the ornament is less than an inch tall.  It is a miniature ornament after all.  You can’t read the music, but you can tell it is supposed to be there, which in this case is all you really need.

This has proved to be a more popular entry in the series than the last few, and I certainly like it.  It is simple, but it is fun.  I can actually picture Snoopy howling in tune to Christmas carols, and Woodstock’s chirps would be the perfect accompaniment.  Plus, I love Christmas music, so anything that celebrates that gets an added bump in my mind.

Snoopy and Woodstock are standing in the snow, so this base does give the ornament a flat surface you can use to set it out if you want.  Again, remember the size.

Or you can hang the ornament.  The loop is on Snoopy’s hat, and when you slip a loop through it you’ll find that it tips forward ever so slightly, but not enough to be an issue.

While I haven’t gone caroling very often, I’ve always found it fun.  2016’s Winter Fun with Snoopy captures that fun perfectly.

Here's the rest of cold fun with the Winter Fun with Snoopy series.
