More than likely I won't be around the blog for a few days with final holiday preparations and then the actual celebration with family and friends. I know you're probably as busy as I am so I'll make this short and sweet. I hope you have a wonderful Holiday, whether you celebrate Christmas or not!
One thing I do every year is watch my favorite holiday movie, or at least one of them (the other is Little Women, but that one makes me cry which is not very pretty for Christmas photos). I love love love The Bishop's Wife. The original with Cary Grant and Loretta Young, (definitely NOT the remake with Whitney Houston...which was just a total travesty). It gives me such a feel good Christmas cheer because at the heart it's about reconnecting with who you are, with your family, the person you love but may take for granted, friends you may have lost contact with, and religion. Yes, it has some silly scenes, but for me it just adds to the charm :) And it has one of my favorite Christmas trees ever!
If you've never seen it I highly recommend it. I know most people like It's a Wonderful Life, but for me so much of that movie focuses on the depressing part of his life and you only get the feel good moment a few times...mostly at the end. The Bishop's Wife gives me that feel good, smile out loud kind of feeling all the way through. I would try to explain it, but this review on Amazon says it all. Can't beat that feeling ...nor all the tinsel on the tree :) What's your favorite holiday movie?
