What’s Your Favorite Christmas Movie?
Recently our family watched via Amazon (Free with Prime) a movie from 25 years ago that became one of my favorite renditions of the Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol”. It was “An American Christmas Carol” starring Henry Winkler (and a few other 70’s stars) and was set in Depression era America. I think it was that version that really got me interested in seeing almost every other rendition of that classic story (and I even saw a Broadway production of it in Cincinnati some 10 years ago).
Another family favorite that we tend to make a tradition around here is the 1994 version of Miracle on 34th Street. My son was only 6 years old when we saw it for the first time (on video) and when they did the scene where Santa was making his debut as the big department store Santa in the huge decorated toy department, and he let out a “Whoah! Where is THAT?” So that scene always takes me back 15-20 years (and counting).
So what about you? We’d appreciate hearing from some of you! Don’t hold back! Give us some Christmas movies memories!
