From Carrie Elks this week:
We all love a bit of romance at Christmastime! Tell us about your favorite Christmas story—it could be a book, a movie or a true-life romance. What makes it so memorable?
I'm sure you've enjoyed Gemma Brocato's story. If you missed her, be sure to go back to sample her fabulous writing.
My favorite Christmas story is quite famous: White Christmas. I adore the vintage, old fashioned charm of the film and the patriotic message to always support our troops, active or retired. I've always had a version of this film, first VCR, then DVD. It's just not Christmas without watching it.
From the first scenes set at the front lines of World War II, I am swept into the movie, singing along with each and every Irving Berlin song. Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen star and perform intricate dances and perfect harmonies on and off the stage.
Here's one I've always wanted to see performed at a Talent Show:
Then there's this one. Never can hold back a tear or two.
And, of course, the title song, White Christmas. A happy ending for all!
Sorry this is so long, but to adequately explain why White Christmas is my favorite I have to share my favorite songs from the movie. There's always a soundtrack to my life, so a musical makes sense.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays. Whatever customs you and yours celebrate, I send blessings to you.
Time to return from the forties and visit LaNora Mangano to discover her favorite holiday story.
