    I don’t remember all that much from my own sesame street days but since my sister is almost exactly 10 years younger than me I had the WONDERFUL luck to be exposed to “Elmos saves Christmas” now whenever I think of sesame street I most usually think of the song “every day can’t be Christmas”

    I was too old for Sesame Street when it came to Australia but I remember it a little from when my younger sister watched it. I didn’t really get into it until we had The Muppet Show in primetime TV, and then I enjoyed watching Sesame Street so I could see Muppet mischief.

    I have fond memories of Sesame Street… some not so fond… I remember playing Super Grover and getting stung on the bum by a bee when I was three!

    Also, I love this song and it makes me cry, I think it is so beautiful! Yes I am weird.

    Sesame Street is a great show, and this is a beautiful song.

    I was so glad when Snuffleupagus became real, because as a four year old not being believed really frustrated me. I was lucky that it was only my five year old brother tormenting me, but still.
