A Classic Christmas

Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year…
- Christmas Time is Here, Vince Guaraldi

We are now halfway through December and there is no denying it: Christmas is in the air! Since I was a little girl, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. I have fond memories of “helping” to decorate the tree, writing letters to Santa (and sometimes getting responses!), and making special Christmas cookies with Mom.

I also remember all the wonderful Christmas movies my parents showed me. There were claymation classics when I was young and, during my teenage years, black and white movies and holiday-themed musicals. Now that I am older, I have added many recent movies (Elf and A Muppet Christmas Carol, for example) to my holiday viewing, but these more traditional movies will always be my Christmas favorites.

If you’re in the mood for more traditional holiday fare, browse the HCPL catalog and request a movie today!
