"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

Fa-La-La-La-La, La-La-La-La...Christmas Eve

Today's movie is It's a Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Mitchell, Henry Travers, and Beulah Bondi.

Before we watch that trailer, here is a short message from the same year as the movie:

Jimmy Stewart has put off following his own ambitions his entire life to the betterment of his family and town. He is now contemplating suicide as the solution to a pressing financial problem, and believes that everyone would be better off if he had never been born. An angel, Henry Travers, is dispatched to show Jimmy Stewart the shocking reality of what his family and town would be like without his presence.

The perfect Christmas Eve movie - and I love love love the look of your blog! Sorry have not been commenting, but have been wrapping things badly and making haphazard pastries - the usual pre-Christmas festivities ;)

Have a wonderful holiday!
