Christmas videos

Almost everyone has a favourite classic Christmas video and most of these can be found on the library shelves. Rather than waiting to see if your favourite will be on TV this holiday season, check the library.

Animated holiday classics are fun for the whole family and many enjoy them year after year. A Charlie Brown Christmas is especially memorable, as is Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Each shows how a little love can overcome adversity as the Christmas message shines through.

Among classic holiday favourites are Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life. Both have been around for over 50 years and are still favourites for many.

Of course, we all like to share our favourites, and apart from some of those named above, I always enjoy Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. There is just something about the music, and the sentimentality of this movie, that makes me want to watch it every year. My other favourite has to be The Christmas Story. This classic comedy about the little boy who desperately wants a Red Ryder B.B. gun seems to find new fans every year.

I can’t possibly list all of them here, but check the library catalogue and hopefully you’ll find your favourite.
