The list is endless- theatrical films, made for TV movies, TV specials that have been repeating for years and years. I would love to watch them all but there’s not enough time, especially during the holiday season.
The tradition at my house is that no matter what else we do, we try to make time to watch two movies, all together, every year at this time:
“White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye and “Scrooge” the musical version of “A Christmas Carol” starring Albert Finney. My whole family knows these two movies by heart – most of the lines and song lyrics. In fact, they are so ingrained into our family’s culture that we reference these movies year round, as if they were “The Godfather”. This tradition has become very important to me and it saddens me when, as has happened in some years lately, we don’t have the time to watch one of them.
Which brings me to today’s question: “Is there a movie or television show that you try to see every year at holiday time?”
Leave a comment and let “R and R” know!
