I can’t remember a time I didn’t watch It’s a Wonderful Life. Sitting curled on my Grandma’s lap watching George and Mary Bailey every Christmas. It was almost like they were part of my family. Three years old I knew every word of that movie. I told my Grandma I was going to live in Bedford Falls when I grew up.
As I grew older the tradition stayed the same. It’s a Wonderful Life became part of my own holiday tradition. I came to realize as I got older that that Bedford Falls was not a real place, but the memories that the movie brought to me and my family were. I will never grow tired of watching George Bailey help Clarence get his wings.
