It’s true. When I heard that we’d be covering ABC, Freeform and Disney Channel Television’s 25 Days of Christmas I thought. What’s a Jewish girl with an empty nester audience want with kids TV shows? Yes, I am that person…disinterested, Scrooge-like, don’t care about the fanfare and have no kids below the age of 35.
Then this happened

In a tear-jerking sneak peek from Pop Up Santa, the Brantley Family of Clarksville, Tennessee, is about to experience some holiday magic. After a devastating fire in December 2017, Army veteran Stephen Brantley, his wife Iliana and their four children lost their home and all of their possessions, including photographs and Stephen’s war medals.
