Many people during the holidays are alone or in financial despair, especially lately, in these rough economic times. My family and I have shared our experiences with this as well, once upon a time, but now consider ourselves very lucky, for we will always have each other, no matter what happens. Many of the Christmas specials we watch together during the holidays include movies that remind us that we weren't alone during all of our rough times and to keep hope during the holidays, as life will get better eventually.
Our favorite Christmas special to watch together during the holidays is, It's A Wonderful Life. This black and white Christmas classic, can rarely ever be found airing on stations during any time except for the holiday season but whenever we see it on our Satellite TV, it's always the first thing we watch. My family and I, love this heart wrenching story of a man with nothing left, and is ready to give up on life. But a guardian angel comes from heaven to show him how much the world would suffer, if he had never been alive at all. In the end he comes to realize that life may be hard, but having people around that love him is worth staying strong through the hard times and things will get better some day.It's A Wonderful Life is a great classic Christmas special to watch with all of your family members this holiday season.
