Holidays Classics Not to Miss

Guest Author - Amy Romine

November is here. Break out the shopping lists, the dreaded crowds, delectable food and your favorite holiday shows. There are so many to choose from but lets start with the classics.

Miracle on 34th Street - (1947 Twentieth Century Fox) the original holiday classic, airs Thanksgiving Day. Starring Maureen OíHara, John Payne, Edmund Gwenn and of course the delightful Natalie Wood. This classic tales invokes the spirit of the season in its message of love, giving and belief in the impossible despite what the world tells you. A great movie to hand down through the generations, it is relatable and engaging for all. Airing Thanksgiving Day on NBC (check local listings for specific airtime)

Itís a Wonderful Life - (1946 Liberty Films) The story of a man who in his darkest hours wishes he was never born, comes to realize that he has made a difference in the lives of his friends and family. Starring Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed and Henry Travers as Clarence. If you have never taken the time to watch this classic please do. It took me years to watch it, having convinced myself there was no point in watching the original when every show has done their own rendition. I was wrong. There is just something about the original that touches the heart like no other. You may know the story but the movie is an experience in itself. Airing November 30th on TBS (check local listings for specific airtime)

A Christmas Story - (1983 - Warner Brothers)- This is the only movie to ever make my mother laugh out loud. The story of a family surviving the holidays, from the burlesque lamp from 'fragile', to the fluffy pink bunny suit. Moment after moment I guarantee you will laugh aloud at least once. Begins Christmas Eve and airs all day Christmas on TBS. Sit down, digest your fruitcake, and watch it. You will love it!

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer - (1964 - TV) - Narrated by the legendary Burt Ives this stop motion classic is a must see for anyone under the age of 40. We all know the song and we have all seen the movie. Tape it and watch it Christmas Eve while hanging the stockings (or putting the finishing touches on that special gift). (check local listings for specific airtime)

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966-TV) - This book turned Christmas movie must-have is narrated by Boris Karloff, his is the only voice you need. The simple animation of this tale is timeless. The story of a grumpy Grinch who thinks that Christmas is all about presents. (Nah, really?). And how he is determined to destroy the holiday for all so he can get some sleep. Airing November 19th on TBS (check local listings for specific airtime)

There are many, many choices but these will give you a good foundation. Look for more of favorite holiday picks coming soon!
