  • Home Alone – This is a kid favorite, featuring a young boy who’s accidentally left at home by his parents for Christmas vacation. What ensues is a hilarious journey through gut-splitting physical comedy as this boy fends off his house from would-be and rather dim-witted intruders.
  • “It’s a Wonderful Life” – A true classic, this movie reminds us all of what we should indeed be thankful for this holiday season as we watch the main character lose everything and gain much more through the gift of compassion.
