As I get older, I may not have the Christmas spirit the way I did when I was a child, but no matter what, I always love Christmas movies. It’s kind of hard not to when Christmas movies touch our hearts and make us believe in the goodness of people. This weekend, I popped in a DVD of one of my favorites and I realized that I never get tired of watching these oldies but goodies. Are you like that, too?
When you stop and think about it, movies like A Miracle on 34th Street are just as popular today as they were years ago. Newer versions come out, but still the stories appeal to men, women, and children of all ages. Since it’s the holiday season, I thought I’d not only list my favorite Christmas movies, but I’ll also offer one of my favorites to the winner of this month’s contest.
As always, narrowing down three favorites is tough, but here goes…
Let’s see…hum…I’m going to have to put the movie It’s A Wonderful Life at the top of my list.
Right up there next to It’s A Wonderful Life is The Family Man with Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni.
Another favorite is the movie Scrooged with Bill Murray.
I also love the classic Charles Dickens story of Ebenezer Scrooge, played by Patrick Stewart.
And now for the contest. Leave a comment and tell us one or two of your favorite Christmas movies and you’ll be entered in the drawing to win the DVD It’s A Wonderful Life. The contest ends December 14, 2009, and the winner will be announced on December 15th. Chances of winning depend on the number of entries, and the contest is available to US residents only.
