It’s a Christmas Miracle🎄

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s a Wonderful Life is considered to be the greatest Christmas movie ever made. Not just that, it’s also considered to be one of the greatest movies ever made period. I can’t argue with that. It’s a Wonderful Life is about as perfect a film as you can get. Though it did take me awhile to finally see it and since then, I still haven’t rewatched it. But I do eventually plan on making a habit of watching the movie every year. It’s a Wonderful Life is most known for being a Christmas movie about a man who sees what his life would have been like if he’d never been born. A premise that would go on to be imitated many times after its release. I myself wonder what my life would be like had I never been born. How much of an impact have I made on the people in my life? Jimmy Stewart plays George Bailey, a man whose been helping others for most of his life. While It’s a Wonderful Life is known for the things I said previously, the movie is actually 2 hours long and most of it details George’s life leading up to Christmas…

George (center) is the richest man in town

He saves his brother’s life so that he can serve in the military, marries his high school sweetheart, and runs a savings and loan. It eventually leads to George getting in trouble on Christmas Eve when he misplaces $8,000 and the evil Mr. Potter places a warrant for his arrest. After taking it out on his family and the town, George contemplates suicide. This is when George meets his guardian angel Clarence, and he shows him what his life would have been like if he’d never been born. Long story short, your actions affect way more people than you realize. George prays for his life back and he finally learns the true meaning of Christmas. And so does the town, as everyone he knows donates more than enough to cover the lost $8,000. It’s a Wonderful Life also ends with one of the most beautiful lines ever put to film. When George’s youngest daughter says “Everytime a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.” I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
