Miracle On 34th Street kicks it off with the NYC Thanksgiving holiday parade when the real Santa discovers that the actor playing Santa in the parade appears to be intoxicated. Kris Kringle is so upset that goes to the parades director Doris Walker and offers to be the holiday parades Santa Claus. Kris goes on to become a great poster boy as Santa and gets offered a job at Macy’s. Soon he finds himself in a mental institution because no one wants to believe that he is the real “Santa Claus”. The movie ends with everyone finding out that Kris Kringle is really who he claims to be. This black and white Christmas movie is will truly be a family favorite for years to come.

Its A Wonderful Life is another family favorite starring James Stewart. George Bailey has dedicated his life to working in the family business Bailey Building and Loan to prevent Mr. Potter an evil businessman from owning most of the town of Bedford Falls. On Christmas Eve his uncle looses $8000.00 dollars which he intended to deposit at the towns bank. Mr. Potter sees George’s uncle leave the money on the counter and while he attempts to go after him, he then pauses and thinks of how he can use this situation to benefit his cause. When George finds out that his uncle lost the all of the money the business has, he begins to worry as the bank examiner is scheduled to review the companies records later that day. George also realizes that when the bank examiner finds out about the misappropriated funds he will be held responsible and could be sent to jail. Even though this movie is part love story and drama it has a very happy ending. This is amazing film is definitely my families favorite and first choice. For more information check it out here!
