Christmas Movies

Sing we now of Bing...

For me there are really only TWO essential movies of the season. Holiday Inn. White Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I watch more than just the two. I love more than just those two. But there is just something oh-so-magical about Bing Crosby. He ba-ba-bings into my heart I suppose. Who knows?

I don't love everything about Holiday Inn. I could have done without the Abraham Lincoln number in blackface. I could have done without the big-dance-number for the fourth of July with firecrackers. But almost everything else is oh-so-magical. Especially the ending.

I also adore White Christmas. I don't know how I could ever choose between the two. The singing. The dancing. The falling in love. Again, just oh-so-magical.

This was written for My Friend Amy.

I LOVE White Christmas! I really want to go home and have some cocoa and watch it!

Can I just tell you that I adore Bing and White Christmas. I'm sadly without a DVD version of the movie and my VCR only eats tapes these days... LOL

I'm going to have to rent Holiday Inn - I don't know that I've ever seen it. And I'm always in search of good black and white Christmas movies. I love Shop Around the Corner (is that what it's called) with Jimmy Stewart.

I also love "Meet Me in St. Louis" and the original "Miracle on 34th Street."
Merry Christmas Becky!
