Is it too late to watch a Christmas movie?

Is it a wonderful life? Is it love actually? I have not watched any of my favorite or any classic holiday movies yet this Christmas season, except for some Hallmark ones on television. We had a White Christmas in Chicago, but I never sat and watched this movie. I am not sure why I haven’t watched any exactly, but am I too late? Do I want to see people celebrating Christmas when it is over?

Can I still sing along with the heat miser or snow miser? Or watch Frosty come to life? I remember times when my daughters and I began playing the holiday movies right after Thanksgiving. Now that they are older, would I even enjoy the old vintage ones? If I don’t relax with an animated holiday story by New Years Eve, have I missed my chance this year?

Movie time

                                  Movie time

Although I cannot imagine turning on a movie about winter, snow and Christmas in the middle of the summer, I have no problem watching a movie set in the summer or on a beach when the snow is blowing outside. I have a whole stack of movies dubbed “holiday movies” that I only get out this time of year.

These stories are usually cheerful and full of hope, and most wishes do come true by the end of these movies. Perhaps when I get home from work tomorrow, I will pour myself a glass of wine, grab a blanket and laugh as Will Ferrell portrays an elf. Maybe the holidays are not over for me yet.

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good. I try to find the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.
