It’s a Wonderful Life – Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime

Photo Courtesy of RKO Radio Pictures The holidays always make me yearn to watch certain movies.  One of these is It’s a Wonderful Life.  It resonates with me for some reason.  Even though I’m Jewish, I love the spirit and joy of the holiday season (which includes Chanukah, of course), and watching George Bailey find himself in this spectacular movie gives me a sense of warmth each and every...
