I love November and December! The holidays bring our family together sharing traditions, conversation, and good food. We enjoy shopping, riding around our community to spy out new Christmas decorations, and winter sports. Something I look forward to each year is watching my favorite Christmas movies and shows.

The scene with a homeless family sitting in the cold eating potatoes that had fallen off a wagon. Then the creepy specter of Christmas yet to come, especially where Scrooge sees his own gravesite.

Christmas cartoons I love include Frosty the Snowman with Jimmy Durante, and Jackie Vernon, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer with Burl Ives, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. My favorite is Dr. Suess’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Boris Karloff.

White Christmas is a beloved family film and my daughter’s must see Christmas movie starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. It’s a Wonderful Life with James Stewart and Donna Reed is another classic holiday film.its_a_wonderful_life
