36: Merry Christmas! Happy Easter! And Don't Forget To Floss! (Rise of the Guardians)

Happy Easter everybody! In an effort to inject a little bit of Christmas into the Bunny’s time of year, this week the elves decided to discuss Dreamworks Animation’s 2012 feature-film, Rise of the Guardians, which brings together Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost in order to take on the evil Boogeyman, Pitch. There is a lot of love to go around between Julia, Thom, and Anthony in an episode that is infinitely more cheerful than last week’s, as the hosts gush over these new interpretations of the icons of childhood and the lore that surrounds them. There is one big question mark that looms over the episode this week, however: is this movie actually a Christmas film? And if not, how will that factor into where this holiday mashup fits into the official Christmas Canon Ranking?
