Christmas Week: Holiday Movies
As we all prepare during the final days before Christmas, we might want to kick back and relax with some holiday favourites.
It's a Wonderful Life: watch Jimmy Stewart chew the scenery and Clarence get his wings in this Christmas-time favourite.
A Christmas Carol: this film version of Charles Dickens' Christmas classic makes us love Christmas all over again.
A Christmas Story: why get a pair of socks when you can get an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle?
Die Hard: nothing says the peace and joy of Christmas like blowing up terrorists.
Sympathy for Lady Revenge: a wonderfully crafted Korean film that starts off Christmas-y but gets dark. Really, really dark.
These last two entries aren't movies but are really worth watching.
"Miracle on Evergreen Terrace": Bart tries to cover up his nearly disastrous antics during Christmas. Minus the Cajun sausage.
"A Charlie Brown Christmas": the Browniest of Christmas specials. My favourite bit is when Linus recites from the Gospel according to Saint Luke.
Don't have time to watch these shows? Go here.
Archaeologists have found a dwelling from the time of Jesus. Sweet.
