Happy New Year!
Personally, I love this time of year. I like the music, the decorations, pretty much the whole thing. Plus, at my house, we watch Christmas movies. However, we go out of our way to find the Christmas movies that are a little off. Ok, maybe more than a little off. Sure, we watch Miracle on 34th Street (the one with Natalie Wood & Maureen O’Hara, accept no substitutes), but we also watch The Thin Man (yet another Maureen). A decidedly child un-friendly film that has become a holiday stable is Rare Exports. Great film. Another odd one, again, not entirely child appropriate, is Long Kiss Goodnight. There are a few others. It’s just a fun way to mix things up and toss in some additional, albeit twisted, whimsy to a whimsical time of year.
I hope you have some unique bit of fun or entertainment that you get up to at this time of year. Share it in the comments.
If you’re having a rough time this season, as many are, please, don’t hesitate to reach out. Maybe watch a Christmas film. Die Hard is a great one.
