I know this will sound cliche, but when I look at this photo all I can hear is I'll Be Home for Christmas. You know those lines, "I am dreaming tonight of a place I love even more than I usually do." I grew up in Indiana and every Christmas was white. Snow crunching under my feet, warm smell of firewood burning, and the muffled sounds of the world. These were the Christmas's that I will always remember. When I go to Disneyland, I am instantly taken back to those special holidays. I many not be able to go "home" for Christmas, but it will always be apart of me.
"Christmas eve will find me where the love light gleams. I'll be home for Christmas if only in my dreams."

Now I have to admit that this attraction often brings me more laughs than tears. Though, tears are shed when the attraction breaks down and I am stuck on the ride. It's the ride that we either love or hate- it's a small world. When the holidays arrive at Disneyland, I always love this attraction. I've only grown to love the original in the past few years (Thanks Walt for making this a classic attraction). So in the spirit of the holiday season, I present some of my favorite scenes from it's a small world!

Here is a more extensive look at the Jingle Cruise. The skipper in me wants to give you puns for each photos, but I will refrain from such shenanigans...or atleast try to. I will warn you that the Jingle Cruise is full of fruitcake and jokes that will make you groan.

|On the left bank there-it's a huge bull elephant. The large sloping forehead and enormous ears mark the African bull, the second most feared animal in the jungle. On the other, THE most feared animal in the jungle--his Mother-in-law.|
