This is perhaps my favorite Christmas movie, along with "A Christmas Story". The movies are so different in the emotions they provoke: where George Bailey and Clarence make you think, Ralphie and Scott Farcus make you laugh. Also, IAWL can only be seen once a year now, where WTBS runs 24 straight hours of Ralphie and Randy! Fa, rah, rah, rah, rah!!!
Do you remember what Clarence inscribed in the Bible he gave George at the end of the movie? Simple, yet profound:
"No man is a failure who has friends!"
Peace on earth everyone, Merry Christmas and a Happy, Happy New Year!
