* Slight warning the final movie does come with some expletives. You've been warned.
Now, since Gone With the Wind is three hours long and Scarlett is six hours long we sometimes make a monopoly of the TV. Some years we trade this tradition in for a game with the rest of the family or a new movie, but we always come back to it.
In our opinion there is nothing more beautiful than technicolor. And this movie shows why. Who hasn't wanted to wear just one of the gowns that Scarlett did for an evening? Truly a great and beautiful movie.
L., is the person who introduced me to this movie, and we have watched it every year since. Is it traditional? No, but it does offer the song, "Hard Candy Christmas" sang by the awesome Dolly Parton.
Since this movie was discovered around this time of year so long ago it has stuck as our sister tradition to watch this movie at Christmas time, specifically, Christmas Eve. It used to be so hard for us to fall asleep and stay asleep on Christmas Eve always wanting to see what Santa had brought us.
This movie is something we would watch when our parents had gone to sleep and we had control of the TV for a few brief hours. Or, when we had awoken at 4:00 am and had to do something to occupy our time before we could open up the gifts.
2. Love Actually
Okay there is a soft spot for Bill Nighy as Billy Mac and his manager. Just perfection as far as I'm concerned. So if you like romantic movies with great stories and comedy and are looking for something this season I suggest this movie.
