The 12 Days of Christmas...Day 10.

It's a Wonderful Life.
Miracle on 34th Street.
White Christmas.
A Christmas Carol.
Polar Express.
A Charlie Brown Christmas.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Christmas Vacation.
Home Alone.
Elf.
Scrooged.
The Santa Clause.
Bad Santa.
Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
...and more.

Those titles above probably don't need an explanation.  Christmas classics.  Some actual classics, others cult classics and whether you like them or not, they are on TV a-plenty during the holiday season.

Each movie in one way or another, warms our hearts, makes us laugh (and then cry) and by the end, have attempted to restore our faith in humanity.


Day 10 is for the 'classics', whatever they may be.

"Christmas reminds us we are not alone. We are not unrelated atoms, bouncing and ricocheting amid aliens, but are a part of something, which holds and sustains us. As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same. Christmas shows us the ties that bind us together, threads of love and caring, woven in the simplest and strongest way." ~ D.E. Westlake

Until next time.
