I've come to recognize how even for a kids' show Thomas has become pretty formulaic, but I bought the disc against my better judgment. For a "special" (really just 4 episodes), there's really no additional thought or effort put in. Sure there's lots of great wintery-looking scenes, but all four stories are the same plot of a character being assigned a special but disregarding their instructions in an attempt to do something fun/special. Aside from some decorations, there's nothing to make these stories much more "Christmas-y" than any others.

Finally, the way they avoid saying "Christmas" is handled really tactlessly. Expressions like "Merry Winter" and "Winter Holiday Party" really stretch the willing suspension of disbelief, especially as Thomas is set in 1950s Britain and was created by an Anglican clergyman.

In contrast, Thomas & Friends: Ultimate Christmas includes some earlier Christmas stories, including the engines throwing a Christmas party to thank Mrs. Kindly for saving Thomas, and the engines searching for Thomas when he gets lost in the snow with the station's Christmas tree. I highly recommend it.

I think this is the perfect DVD to get kids, whether Thomas fans or not, into the Christmas mood. It features Santa, snowmen, Christmas lights and trees, snow, and more! The DVD is broken down into four episodes, all with Christmas themes, and are great to watch separately or all in a row. My sons were super excited to see Bash and Dash which they first met in the DVD Misty Island Rescue. This DVD is also narrated more than the trains talk, which I know some people prefer. I love though the lessons my kids learn from Thomas & Friends like working together, making friends, doing your work, and more. Overall, this really is a cute DVD for any child, but of course especially for kids that love trains or Thomas!

I heartily agree with most comments above. Besides the usual Thomas style claptrap, the stories bend over backwards to never mention the word Christmas and it is somewhat ridiculous. My family is not particularly religious but the strain to avoid any religious conotation to a religious holiday was almost embarrasing, definitely offensive. This is definitely one to avoid. The kids sort of liked it, but it didn't keep their interest for long. I can't see myself or my kids wandering the neighborhood wishing our friends a "Merry Winter Holiday" instead of saying merry Christmas or happy holidays..

Who thought this was a good idea? These stories have nothing to do with Christmas or any other winter holiday. The last straw for me was when Sir Topham Hatt dressed up as Santa Claus and said, "Happy Winter Holidays, everyone!" Really? It's pretty bad when not even a Christian Saint says Merry Christmas. At least I didn't pay for it since it streamed for free with our Prime membership. From now on, I'm only letting my kids watch Thomas stories made before 2002.

Merry "WINTER WISH" - ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? When is the last time you went up to someone at Christmas and said to them "MERRY WINTER WISH"!?!?!? I wonder what the Reverend W. Awdry - the original creator/author of Thomas - would think if he were alive today to see what you liberals have done to his "Thomas"?!?! For God's sake (OOPS); For heaven's sake (OOPS); For PETE"S Sake why don't you Political Correctness Nazis let our children be children!!! Tell me one other holiday that includes Santa, Christmas Trees and Christmas lights as shown in the DVD that is not called "C H R I S TMAS"????

List of ACCEPTABLE Winter Greetings:
"Happy Hanukkah " (Jewish)
"Merry Malkh" (Festival of the Sun Worshippers)
"Merry Newtonmas" (Atheist Celebration replacing Christmas)
"Merry M'draniht" (Anglo Saxon Pagan Celebration)
"Merry Yalda" (Celebrates Winter Solace)
"Happy Kwanzaa" (Celebrates African American heritage)
"Happy HumanLight" (Humanist Celebration)
"Merry Quaid-e-Azam" (Muslim Celebration)

List of UNACCPTABLE Winter Greetings:
"Merry C H R I S TMAS" (Celebrates the birth of Jesus - DEFINITELY A NO-NO, REPORT ALL OFFENDERS IMMEDIATELY)

My son LOVES Thomas but this DVD went right in the GARBAGE!!!! THIS IS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GONE OFF THE CLIFF!!! It seems now days every type of Christmas celebration under the sun is welcome and emphasized by the media, EXCEPT FOR THE ONE TRUE MEANING OF "C H R I S T MAS" because it celebrates the birth of our "LORD" - the ONLY unmentionable 4-letter word in our wonderful American Media!!!

I love Thomas however, after watching about 1/2 of the movie I turned it off. What the heck this is Christmas not Winter vacation or Holiday! Not worth watching.

I cannot recommend this video based on the fact that they went out of their way not to mention Christmas. It was awkward and unnecessary.

My boys love this video (they are 4 and 2), and they know it's about Christmas, but I've make sure to explain that some people think saying "Merry Christmas" is offensive, which is why they're saying weird things. I noticed that they didn't rename the Christmas Tree, but they avoided actually identifying "Father Christmas" (the costume Mr. Perkins wears at the end of the program), because "Father Winter Holiday" would sound just "too" ridiculous. So, as an adult, I find the show annoyingly anti-Christian (can you imagine renaming Muslim or Jewish holidays to avoid offending non-Muslims or non-Jews?), but otherwise my boys love watching the program.
