Update for 2009: Cranberry Christmas is back on ABC Family. December 1, 7:30 PM EST and December 7, 11:30 AM EST. Check your local listings for channel numbers.
I received an email in the YBA mailbox from the PR firm handling the Ocean Spray/Cranberry Christmas account while I was travelling this week. Check it out:
Barry fans can now get their ears on his new single, “Christmas is Just Around the Corner,” which was released just today. The song is one of two original songs performed by the legendary Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, Barry Manilow, which will be featured as part of Ocean Spray’s first animated television special “Cranberry Christmas.”
“Cranberry Christmas” will air as part of ABC Family’s “25 Days of Christmas” programming event on Monday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and again on Saturday, December 13, at 12:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Be sure to check it out.
And it if you can’t wait that long to hear the new song, it’s available on iTunes now. Click here to hear a sample and to purchase the song if you like.
The song really is adorable. Barry can nail Christmas songs on a lot of different levels (ironic as hell, isn't it?? LOL!) Cranberry Christmas is already set up on my DVR "to do" list. I'll leave the review to my daughter as she is the true expert in this house on animated features.
Hope everyone survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday. We ended up leaving the inlaws early because my daughter got a little sick. But at least we have a jump start on December.
Have a great week, everybody!
