It’s a Wonderful Life is a rare Christmas classic that manages to go beyond that and become a true cinematic masterpiece. I remember first watching this film back in 5th Grade and it completely changed my perspective on storytelling and the magic of Christmas. Frank Capra tells a beautiful story with such simplicity and direction that has captured generations and Jimmy Stewart as the down on his luck yet heroic George Bailey sticks with viewers as we triumph for him to succeed. Personally, this film means the world to me and I love watching it every year. Luckily, it is on YouTube, but I strongly advise those watching it to pick it up, share it with the family and enjoy a warm classic together.

Remember: Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings.
