#LoveWonderfulLife

While it wasn’t a big hit at the box office, “It’s a Wonderful Life” gained the love it deserved through television syndication. A sort of Bob Cratchit version of “A Christmas Carol,” the story follows good-natured but perennially frustrated George Bailey, who discoversdeep in a moment of desperationthat his life has beauty and value. It’s not just one of the best holiday films, but one of the most beloved movies of all time.

#LoveHomeAlone

"Home Alone" centers on Kevin McCallister, a young, inventive boy who is left behind while his family flies away for Christmas. He sets up a series of Rube Goldberg boobytraps when prowlers (portrayed Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci) try to burglarize his upper-middle class house, and manages to keep both the house and himself intact. (We can't say the same for the Sticky Bandits). This movie launched the career of Macaulay Culkin.
