Watching classic holiday movies will almost certainly take you on a trip down memory lane to a time when Christmas was magical.
Some of us prefer the time-honored traditions of White Christmas, A Christmas Story and Miracle on 34th Street.
Others will enjoy newer holiday classics like Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, The Santa Clause and The Polar Express. Friends and family may even have a lively debate over whether Gremlins or Die Hard are truly holiday classics.
Whatever your pleasure, watching your favorite holiday movie on the big screen can be a whole different experience.
It’s a Wonderful Life is a great example. Countless times I’ve watched George Bailey sit in Mr. Potter’s office desperately begging for help. It wasn’t until I was viewing the Frank Capra classic at the theatre was I able to get a good look at the items on Mr. Potter’s desk. These items are subtle reference to his true character.
