One of the chief benefits of a pool guy that thinks and does things “outside of the box” is his willingness to give new meaning to pool “service”. Without question, the holiday times puts me in the mood to give. But because I’m of meager means, the giving will need to be a blog that is enlightening, uplifting and mostly, is cheap. Early in my life, I remember being positioned in front of a little screen, cathode ray tube technology, black and white television set and forced to watch the non-colorized version of “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Loved that movie!
In the ensuing years, my list grew to include many classics, old and new. I don’t apologize for some of my sappy selections but I did limit it to wholesome, family-themed, family-appropriate movies that all members in your family would/could/should enjoy together.
At the top of my list, not surprisingly, is “It’s a Wonderful Life”, followed in no particular order by “A Christmas Story”, “Home Alone”, “White Christmas”, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, “A Muppet Christmas Carol”, “Mickey’s Christmas Carol”, and “Miracle on 34th Street”. These are all movies I’ve seen and while not an all-inclusive list, no doubt, it will probably spur many of you to launch your own favorite-Christmas-movie-of-all-time search. Good hunting and Aloha from Island Waters Pool Service.
