December Recommendations

It's that time again where families gather around the Christmas tree to unwrap presents and spend quality time together. It's honestly my favorite time of the year and I just love everything about Christmas. So I thought it would be fun to show you guys my holiday recommendations. Enjoy!

Movie Recommendations: It's A Wonderful Life(1946)

James Stewart plays George Bailey who feels unaccomplished with his home life and work life, that he contemplates killing himself until an angel shows him the positive things in his life. 

It is such an excellent movie and if you ever feel down about yourself, just watch this movie. It will seriously change your life. 

* Make sure you keep tissues handy especially towards the end of the movie!

 Meet Me in St. Louis(1944) 

The Smith family is living in happy bliss until business calls to move them out of St. Louis. 

Meet Me in St. Louis is a movie that I will never miss watching around Christmastime. It is such a endearing and sweet film and Judy Garland is seriously at her best! 

Judy singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is by far my favorite Christmas song of all time!

Miracle on 34th Street(1947)
