Christmas movies (and a holiday giveaway) by Judy Penz Sheluk
I don't watch a lot of TV, I'm not particularly romantic or sentimental, and yet, every December I find myself inexplicably drawn to Christmas movies. Maybe it's because as a kid, my mom and I would always watch White Christmas. I can remember dreaming of getting married in the red cape and dress that Vera Ellen and Rosemary Clooney wore in the final number. Later on, in high school, I would sing the song, Sisters, with my friend Patti. We were almost certainly out of tune, but we felt like sisters.
Since then, we've added Home Alone (the first one is a must; the one in New York usually lands on our radar). Mike's also added Die Hard to his list, though I'm not convinced it's a Christmas movie! Then again, Mike doesn't like my all-time favorite Christmas movie, Love Actually. That doesn't stop me from watching it at least once (and sometimes twice) in the season. Come on, who can resist Bill Nighy as Billy Mack? And when Emma Thompson opens that Joni Mitchell Greatest Hits CD expecting the heart-shaped locket...
Do you have a favorite Christmas movie? Post a comment and let me know!
