Is Disney’s Frozen still hot in your home? It is in ours! We still sing the songs from the movie. Yes, I am included!
It was Ella’s Christmas program in school that day. She’s the adorable Christmas tree in the middle. My hubby Rix took photos and videos while I watched on with our two younger kids. Afterwards, we had lunch at Shakey’s. Spaghetti, chicken and mojos, anyone? I love family moments like that! And what made it even better was when Rix declared we were going to watch Frozen in the cinema. I was excited and also apprehensive. It’s the children’s very first time to watch in a cinema. What if they shriek, rather loudly, in delight or jump up and down as if they’re watching at home, thus, disturbing other people?
My children surprised me by sitting still and watching intently. And so, I relaxed and enjoyed the movie. I wrote down my thoughts and feelings about Frozen below.
Did you sing along to some words in my poem?
Other thoughts I had on the movie:
- It might be unfair to Elsa that Anna had no recollection of her sister’s powers but Elsa must live with the guilt of accidentally hurting Anna.
- I wonder what their parents used to tell Anna regarding Elsa’s isolation. Why did Anna think Elsa was shutting her out?
- Elsa obviously wasn’t at home in Arendelle because when her power was discovered, instead of retreating to her room and telling everyone to go away, she was the one who took refuge in the mountains.
- Sometimes the one who has the incredible power is the one who needs to be saved. From herself, most probably.
- The troll Grandpabbie was mistaken to suggest removing all magic, leading to Elsa’s holding back her beautiful magic and her feelings.
This movie is a reminder for me to embrace my children’s personalities and quirks, which are magical because that’s how God made them! Who is anyone to say that they are weird or abnormal? It would be wonderful if everyone accepts everyone for who they are. Easier said than done, I know, but can we at least try? Everyone wants to be free somehow: Free from judgement, free to be one’s self. Try singing the song Let It Go, it could resonate with you. And, you might get an LSS!
Have you and your kid(s) watched Frozen? What did you think of the movie?
