When I was a kid, one of my favourite things to do during the festive season was hunkering down on the couch and marathoning holiday movies. Now that I’m an adult, I still haven’t broken the tradition – don’t be surprised if you catch me watching The Muppet Christmas Carol for the 197th time. So now, with a stupid amount of streaming services at our fingertips, it’s easy to get overwhelmed (which is a wonderful problem to have this time of year).
I recently discovered Alison Parker’s comedy/adventure short, Santa’s Little Ferrets, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a cuter poster. It features three adorable ferrets in holiday-themed bow times peeking out of a stocking. What’s not to love? As if Santa’s Little Ferrets’ cutesy-factor wasn’t already off-the-charts, it features Good Boys’ star Jacob Tremblay, circa 2014.

I haven’t had a minute to watch Santa’s Little Ferrets just yet, but I suspect it won’t make my holiday movie naughty list.
Santa’s Little Ferrets synopsis:
It’s Christmas Eve in a typical suburban household — two worn-out parents, and three wildly excited children. In a desperate attempt to get the kids to sleep, their father tells them a homespun bedtime story, an instant Christmas classic — the story of Santa’s little ferrets. Although very few people know it, it seems that Santa brings an elite security detail with him every Christmas Eve — three highly trained ferrets. Their job? Make sure no one’s awake, trying to catch a glimpse of Santa. But on this particular night the unexpected happens, and the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred. Suddenly, the ferrets’ entire security operation is in jeopardy!
