***This is a sponsored post,  I was given the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own!
It's not too early to start thinking about the holidays!  They will be upon us before we know it!  On October 15th, Nickelodeon is releasing SpongeBob SquarePants: It's a SpongeBob Christmas on Blu-ray for the first time!  We just love this holiday episode!  Plankton tries to ruin Christmas and SpongeBob is the only one not affected by his dirty tricks.  He must get everyone back in the holiday spirit before Santa comes.  This special episode is made to look like the classic Rankin/Bass holiday specials, like Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Santa Claus is Comin' to Town.  The kids and I love the catchy songs like "Don't Be a Jerk, It's Christmas" and "Santa's Eyes."  Nickelodeon has truly made a classic Christmas video with this one!  It really gets my family in the Holiday spirit since we LOVE SpongeBob SquarePants almost as much as we love Christmas!  This is the very first time Nickelodeon has released an Ultra-Violet copy, so that we can all watch the digital copy when we're on the go!  Make sure to add this Christmas classic to your list for that special SpongeBob SquarePants fan in your life!  There are also ten great episodes of SpongeBob's first season included in this Blu-ray Combo Pack!

Celebrate the holidays SpongeBob-style with It’s a SpongeBob Christmas! It’s SpongeBob as you’ve never seen him before – on Blu-ray for the first time, as part of this Blu-ray Combo Pack. You’ll see SpongeBob, Patrick, Plankton and all of Bikini Bottom in better quality for even more holiday fun.  This perfect holiday gift arrives with over two hours of additional Blu-ray content, including ten fan favorite episodes from SpongeBob’s very first season.  Also, this combo pack includes Nickelodeon’s very first UltraViolet – so consumers will get a digital copy of the title special! SpongeBob fans of all ages have much to rejoice over this holiday season!

The Blu-ray release available for purchase will be enabled with UltraViolet, a new way to collect, access and enjoy movies.  With UltraViolet, consumers can add movies to their digital collection in the cloud, and then stream or download them – reliably and securely – to a variety of devices.

In SpongeBob SquarePants: It’s A SpongeBob Christmas!, Plankton vows to get his Christmas wish – the Krabby Patty formula – by turning everyone in Bikini Bottom bad by feeding them his special jerktonium-laced fruitcake. John Goodman guest stars as Santa Claus. Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment, and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, SpongeBob SquarePants: It’s a SpongeBob Christmas! is available on Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 15, 2013 for the suggested retail price of $21.99.
