A Christmas favorite – any time of the year:

The other day a young Facebook friend posted this question: What’s your all-time favorite Christmas movie?

Friends, Romans and fellow countrymen weighed in. Responses included Ernest Saves Christmas, Elf, Christmas with the Cranks, Home Alone,  National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Not to sound like a wet blanket or anything, but with the possible exception of George Bailey, none of the responses have much  – if anything – to do with the true meaning of Christmas.

Have we forgotten?
