Growing up, we'd watch two TV specials every Christmas season (and often repeatedly).
The first was the Peanuts Christmas special, and the second was (of course) It's a Wonderful Life.
Thanks to Youtube, here they are.
Linus' Reading of The Christmas Story.
The Ending of It's A Wonderful Life.
When you get off track this season, apply both liberally as needed.
And a very Merry Christmas to all of you and yours from the Unknown Household.
