Autumn... Time to Start Thinking About Christmas.

Is it too soon to start talking about Christmas? Maybe. Is it too soon to start talking about the best Christmas... nay... the BEST movie ever? Certainly not.You see, every Thanksgiving my sister and I have a tradition of watching "It's a Wonderful Life," while eating pumpkin pie and coffee. It's what we do. So, in that Thanksgiving is in Autumn... "It's a Wonderful Life," is part of Autumn too. Okay I'm getting excited just thinking of it so, I think I'll dole it out... bits at a time. This way we savor the joy, like so many pieces of Thanksgiving turkey! In these weeks leding up to Thanksgiving, and the first viewing of the movie for the season, I want to discuss with ya'll what it's all about. We'll break down the scences, bit by savory bit if we must, to get to the meat of it... what's it all mean... what can we draw from the characters? I'm looking forward to it and I hope ya'll can join me for an online discussion of one of the greatest movies of all time! See ya soon.


  1. YES, YES, YES it NEVER too early to talk about Christmas. And you won't belive this....the movie tradition here "Christmas Story"....Greg and the kids watch it all the time!!

  2. One of my favorite movies, although we watch it while decorating the Christmas tree, sometime in December. My boys don't pay it much attention, but I guess it went in - here's why: My birthday passed recently and My Middle Son asked me, "What do you want for your birthday, Mom? Would you like the moon? I'll lasso the moon for you, Mom...." Oh, I LOVED that! I wanted to make a blog post on it, but he asked me not to, so I'll just share it with you! I'm looking forward to all your posts about IAWL,
