3. It's a Wonderful Life- (Layout from Dec.2008)
JOURNALING: It's a Wonderful Life is one of my all time favorite movies. So much so that our blog shares its name. It reminds me that the way I treat others leaves a lasting impact. That it isn't the things, but family & friends that determine wealth. No matter how many times I see it I always end up with tears running down my face. As soon as George Bailey shouts 'My mouths bleeding, Bert! My mouth's bleeding' and digs in his pockets for ZuZu's petals I'm a goner. They continue to roll as George runs through Bedford Falls as a magical snow falls. When he runs in the house and grabs the loose banister knob, something that had been one of life's problems and kisses it, I'm reminded that all the day-to-day stresses and issues are not as bad as we make them out to be. I truly do have A Wonderful Life. Clarence the Angel was right- 'No man is a failure who has friends'
4. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation: Clark W. Griswold is just funny. Nothing more to say. The movie is just chucked full of classic one liners.5. Home Alone- Sweet little Macaulay Culkin. He was so cute. This movie always reminds me of my sister Katie. And I love when 'The Carol of the Bells' plays near the end.
Runner Ups- Christmas Story, Elf, Die Hard (hee hee), The Holiday, The Santa Clause
