It's a Wonderful Life
December 02, 2011
"I'm going to find the answer to a question that's puzzled the world for centuries. Does Santa Claus sleep with his whiskers outside or in?"
"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"
These are quotes from two of my favorite Christmas movies: Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life. One of our family traditions is to squeeze in as many holiday-themed movies as we can watch during those few short weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. And, there are plenty to choose from! We run the gamut from the classics: The Bishops Wife, Christmas in Connecticut, and those mentioned above, to the more recent releases: Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and Polar Express.
A recent search of MCPL's holiday movies on DVD yielded 265 titles. So why not relax, put your feet up, dig into that bowl of popcorn, and let the weather rage outside while you let a Christmas movie-fest get you into the holiday spirit!
