CHRISTMAS IN BLACK & WHITE
This weekend I fully intend to relax and watch as many Christmas movies as possible – with a big bowl of popcorn by my side and a fire crackling in the background.
As hard as the music and movie industry may try classic Christmas music and movies just can’t be topped. Nothing can replicate that Christmassy feeling that takes you over when you her the voice of Nat King Cole come over the speaker singing ‘chestnuts roasting on an open fire’ or that undeniable Christmas spirit that swells up inside of you as George Bailey runs through the town of Bedford Falls wishing everyone one and everything ‘Merry Christmas’ at the end of It’s a Wonderful Life.
I love modern day Christmas movies as well; Elf, Home Alone, Christmas Vacation, and the Polar Express are most definitely some of my favorites. However, for some reason though it just doesn’t quit feel like Christmas season to me unless I watch some of those classic black and white Christmas movies. I don’t know exactly how many Christmas movies I’ll get a chance to watch this weekend, but her are three classics that I will be checking off my Christmas movie list.
