Elena is back with all-new adventures now on DVD with the release of Elena of Avalor: Celebrations to Remember! In this all inclusive holiday DVD edition, we get to join Elena and her friends and family as they celebrate holidays that honor the past, cherish the present and look forward towards a magical future! Some of the holidays Elena and her family celebrate are Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Navidad (Christmas), and Carnival.
The Elena of Avalor: Celebrations to Remember DVD is packed with laughs, new characters to cherish, and heart with four celebration themed episodes:
1) A Day To Remember
3) King Of The Carnaval
4) My Fair Naomi
and two bonus episodes:
1) Crystal In The Rough
2) Captain Turner Returns
The DVD also includes a FREE Exclusive Elena Locket with a picture of Elena!
After watching the dvd, I found the different ways Elena’s culture celebrates the holidays interesting. For example, in “A Day to Remember,” Dia de los Muertos is celebrated in the cemetery where her family is buried. Everyone comes together to share food and remember the loved ones they have lost. In America, cemeteries are usually haunted scary places only the brave enter on Halloween. Often they have zombies, Ghosts and ghouls.
Another example is the “Navidad” episode, which is all about different traditions and the characters coming together for one large celebration.
Along woth the wonderful traditions for the kids to learn about and enjoy, there is also a song for each episode. The songs are toe-tappingly fun that, if heard enough, become sing-a-longs…and trust me they will be heard again and again hahaha. Check out one of the songs from “Navidad” below.
