Your Favorite Holiday Movie

By Kate Collins


You've seen the movie dozens of times. You know some of the lines by heart. The characters are as familiar to you as your own family. It wouldn't be the Christmas season without viewing it at least once. It is:

A CHRISTMAS STORY
IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
WHITE CHRISTMAS
THE BISHOP'S WIFE
MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET
ELF
BAD SANTA
OR (fill in the blank)?

I truly have a hard time choosing my favorite. I lean towards A CHRISTMAS STORY only because I grew up 2 blocks from where the story takes place (Jean Shepherd's actual home). The movie wasn't filmed there, but the places mentioned are the same.

Then again, who can resist Jimmy Stewart, or the adorable Zuzu? Or Natalie Wood as a little girl? Or Cary Grant as an angel? AAACK. I can't decide.

What's your all-time fav?

Happy New Year everyone!
