35th Anniversary of Pete’s Dragon (plus giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

35 years ago this month, I remember plopping down on my daddy’s lap as we watched Pete’s Dragon for the first time. I was 3 years old. In my eyes, that dragon could be anyone’s best friend. During that whole movie, I don’t think I twitched a muscle. I have watched it every year since.

Yes — I am 38, but the kid in me LOVES this movie. In fact, it came on television the other day and ya know what? I still remember all the words to every single song! A movie like this just brings back amazing childhood memories!
