Christmas movies ROCK!!

Oh my goodness, I hate to admit this but I have never seen "It's a Wonderful Life", I know how can I call myself a fan of Christmas when I haven't watched one of the old classics? (I hear you Sissy and Aunt Sandi, smack my wrist for this one). Well, truth is I have no idea why I have never watched this movie, I know I have seen bits and pieces of it. I know you have read about my complaints of this islands' lack of things to buy, but today I am praising them. Last year they put out a measly 5 Christmas movies that were all crap except for Jack Frost, which I bought. This year they actually stepped up to the plate. They have GOOD movies like The Santa Clause, The Santa Clause 2 (can't wait for the 3rd to come out next week), All I Want for Christmas, and to my astonishment It's a Wonderful Life Collectors Edition. So I swiped it up for $17.95. It includes both the black and white and newly restored versions. So I have a date to watch it this weekend. I know I will love it. What's not to love??? So today I am thankful for Christmas movies because they always have a nice ending. You know they are supposed to teach you the true meaning of Christmas. It's not about the gifts or decor (although the decor is wonderful) but about family and Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! That my friends is why sing it with me, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I can't wait for you to see It's a Wonderful Life...I would have paid good money to see Jimmy Stewart read the phone book...him and Cary Grant! Oh baby, have I got some movies you need to see...ever seen Arsenic and Old Lace? You know, just because movies are in black and white doesn't make them lame...hopefully you have seen A Christmas Carol, the original from the 30's...there's nothing quite like it, unless it's reading the book. Enjoy your movie!!!
