The only one that I can find is twisting with Santa Stretch and can not find a review or what is on the DVD.
Thanks

Stretch's DVD's are always good and worth getting... that being said, the Christmas DVD is my least favorite of the 8 or so that I own.  While most of his DVDs have stuff for the beginner, intermediate, and beginning advanced twister; the Christmas DVD was much more basic than the other ones that I've seen. 

That being said, I did love his Santa.

Also, if you like Stretch, go onto facebook and friend him on his real name (Wendell Clendennen.)  He offers regular sales on his DVDs.  His Christmas sale (good thru Nov 30 via facebook only) is buy any 3 DVDs for 25 a piece.

Check with Ed Chee at Diamondstorm to see if Buster Balloon's  A very Balloony Christmas is still available.  They used to bundle it with other purchases.  Vicky Kimble's  Twisted Seasons Volume One has a couple of Christmas and Hannkkah designs.

I will second a Ballooney christmas.  Seeing D. Calddwell in a santa hat is worth it in itself.  Nearly lost my coke through my nose on that one!

Note to self, do not eat or drink anything while watching "senior Buster" do anyting.  He is now "officiailly" Buster Balloon from what I hear....But if there is a way to squeee a great laugh oout of an audience, buster will kick it in the shorts and make you pee your pants.  And I am a HUge fan of stretch too, but as was pointed out....the Christmas one is a bit on the basic side..Look to Robbie Furman and adapt his stuff to Santa and elves, Tonya McNiell has a nice elf design and look through the Balloon Magic archives and the Balloon HQ photos to find ideas.

I really like the Rankin Bass DVD that has Santa Claus is Coming to Town on it. It also has Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
 They are timesless family fun for kids of all ages.


Plus they can be very inspiring for balloon making.

I actually would not recommend getting a dvd, rather go to La Rocks and get all the Balloon Magic Magazines back issues that deal with Christmas, you can see them listed by clicking on the snowman face on the homepage.
I own both Don's and Stretch's and love them both, but have gotten more out of the magazines.  All except two (the best two, Santa hat and ride inside reindeer) of Don Caldwell's Christmas designs can be found in the back issues, #43 is one of the best.
Best of luck.

Great idea, Magical Twists!!!

Qualatex.com even has an online index where you can find exactly which issues have what you are looking for! Cheesy
