Celebrating the Holidays

December 8, 2014

We love the holiday season here at Desired Smiles! Some of our favourite ways to celebrate is with a little decorating, festive songs, and holiday movies!

One of our favourite songs to play during the holidays is All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.

Fun fact: Grade 2 teacher, Donald Yetter Gardner wrote the song in 1948 when he asked his class what they wanted for Christmas. He noticed most of them answered with a lisp as they had at least one front tooth missing.

Our favourite Christmas Special to watch on television is the 1964 television special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Our favourite character is Hermey the Misfit Elf. Hermey is a social outcast among the other elves, as he prefers to study dentistry to making toys. In fact, instead of making toys he often spent his time fixing the toy’s teeth.

Although Hermey leaves the North Pole because he feels rejected, he ends up returning and opening his own dental office at the North Pole!

Fun fact: In 2001 reboot Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys, Hermey the Elf has a crush on the Tooth Fairy!

We’re sure you love the holidays too! What are your favourite ways to celebrate? Do you have a favourite song you love to listen to or movie you love to watch to get you in the holiday spirit?
