Christmas in Pine Tree, Vermont.
I have a bunch more cards to photograph and post, but I don't feel like tracking down my camera batteries just now. So here's a question that I saw online today and thought was fun: If you could pick any Christmas movie to spend a couple days in, which would you pick?
I didn't have to think about it for more than a second--I'd hop into "White Christmas." I love that lush Fifties Technicolor world. I love the nightclub in Florida where the boys meet the girls, the club car in the train to Vermont, the New York nightclub that Rosemary Clooney runs away to, and most especially the Columbia Inn. Who wouldn't want to stay there and watch the snow fall? Even if you did have to hang out with that obnoxious Danny Kaye!
It's not a great movie--I think that every time I watch it, which has to be at least a hundred times by now. The plot is beyond silly, and some of the songs make you shake your head, they're so bad. But the little world they created is what I think of when I think of the perfect Christmas of the past!
So......what's yours? Please do share! Maybe you'll remind me of a movie I like even better!
