Randy…your aunt has a great choice. There is a man in my church who – honest injun!! – says he watches It’s A Wonderful Life’ once a month, year round. Not sure I would do that in July – but hey, to each his own.
I seem to have a lot of “likes” in that category…and It’s A Wonderful Life is one. I do like The Nativity Story and the Jesus of Nazareth miniseries goes “in and out of style” with me but watch it every second or third year…Yesterday, while driving my school bus along, I heard some Christmas songs that I know are used in scenes of “Home Alone” – and got the urge to watch that movie again. I see it every Christmas…
There surely are some Christmas movies that I do not “watch” – not into the Grinch, for example …but so many that I watch (I prefer the Pacific Northwest version of Nutcracker over Barishnikov and others) and watch again and again – “Holiday Inn,” :“Bells of St Marys” and no I am not Catholic…that all have just become part of my Christmas holiday (I did not list them all here…A Christmas Carol…and ???)
I know The Reason for the Season but love certain movies being part of the whole event.
