It's a Wonderful Life

We watched It's a Wonderful Life tonight and the ending always chokes me up. George, through no fault of his own, hits bottom and feels so alone. He finds himself wishing he'd never lived. But then he gets an opportunity to see what life would be like had he never lived.
At the end when all his friends come to his rescue, pouring in throwing in a few dollars here and a few dollars there to help George in his hour of need. It's a great story that never gets old in my book.

Closer to home, we came close to having a white Christmas this year. It's been many years since we had enough snowfall on Christmas to actually stick, but by 10 a.m this morning, the ground was beginning to turn white.  Thankfully it wasn't cold enough to make the roads dangerous, so we made our rounds.
I ate enough turkey and dressing to spew. I'll have to fast for the month of January to get back on track. 

I hope you all had a great day, and that 2011 is the best year yet!


  1. Those classic movies never do get "old" - they just get better. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Merry Christmas to you an yours.

  2. My Xmas favorites are on the humorously irreverent side, but after reading about what you watched, I'm wondering if you're familiar with "Miracle on 34th St"?

  3. I had the best Christmas I've had in 19 years. I did not trapse all around Southern Indiana visiting family and friends. I stayed home and did nothing but read the papers and watch movies. I also did not overeat, wear myself out or get stuck in the snow as I have in past years.

    I may do this again!

    My opinion... One of the top five movies of all time. Great story....

  5. Three favorites in my house are It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas and Christmas Story. It wouldn't be Christmas if I couldn't watch them. Glad you had a good day.

  6. It's A Wonderful Life is my most favourite film ever. I've lost count of the times I've seen it and we were lucky enough to have it showing on Christmas Day here in the UK (plus I have it on DVD of course!).

    I have to watch it on my own, though, as I still cry buckets - all the way through!
