    If you were only allowed to watch the same two Christmas movies for the rest of your lives, which movies would you choose?

    I would choose Christmas Vacation just because it’s my favorite and I love the “FAMILINESS” of it all. I’m a bit of a Clark Griswold myself. I would also choose The Holiday because I love the romance, the beautiful California sun and the lovely English countryside. I have been to California twice and loved it. I was born in England and emigrated to Canada when I was two. I would love to go back to England for a Christmas with my aunts and cousins.

    Hate this kind of questions since it's so hard to answer. One day i could answer one way and the other day it would differ.


    It's a wonderful life - This movie oozes drama and pulls on all strings. Light hearted moments of a chuckle, next minute you fight back tears, and next moment under extreme Happiness. The acting is top notch from Lionel Barrymore, and of course Jimmy Stewart. Many other people to say but those of course the two mains and ooze that experience of acting.


    It Came Upon A Midnight Clear - This movie is mostly fogotten movie in the last 25- 30 years. The movie centers around Mickey Rooney and Scott Grimes trip to NYC after MIckey dies and giving a 2nd chance from heaven to help and find a missing angel. Typically watch this movie a few times a year. If you can find it watch it, if you have never seen it. The movie is never played on TV anymore and can be purchased on DVD from certain sites since it was never given an official release or just watch the whole thing on youtube. One thing you might notice is the movie ELF stole the ending of this movie albeit changed it some.

    I would choose It's a Wonderful Life and While You Were Sleeping. The first selection is obvious, the second one I enjoy Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman (went to college with him) and Michael Rispoli (my husband did business with his family in Rockland County NY). Great Movie - you should see it!
