Holidailies Prompt: Your favorite — or least favorite — holiday scene in a movie.
I am a sucker for a holiday movie. It can be a Santa movie or a holiday romance, and I will watch. I don’t know if there are Christmas slasher movies, but I probably wouldn’t watch those. Any other holiday movie though, and I’m in. My favorites are the old movies – Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life.
But I have to admit – I really don’t like A Christmas Story. Oh sure, it’s got great moments. But I just feel SO bad for Ralphie the whole time. I guess I’m not a fan of pain and embarrassment as humor. I’m not sure which moment is the worst to me. Possibly the whole decoder pin thing – only because I can only imagine how awful that would be to a kid. Waiting and waiting and waiting and then realizing that you’ve been completely ripped off.
I do like the leg lamp though.
