Library Advent Calendar: An angel gets its wings

Christmas has been the inspiration for hundreds of themed films – kids’ films, sentimental films, films for Christmas lovers, for sceptics, funny ones, sad ones, inspirational ones…the list goes on.

I am a massive fan of Christmas films so deciding which goodie to go behind this “door” was very difficult!  However, many people would argue that it’s not Christmas without a viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life, which depicts a memorable Christmas Eve in the life of the lovable but unlucky George Bailey (played by the inimitable Jimmy Stewart).  This film really does have it all – it’ll make you laugh and cry, and remind you of the goodness of humanity.

Here’s a 10 minute clip of the phenomenal end of the film – so don’t watch it if you’ve not seen the film; just do yourself a favour and make Christmas even more special by finally watching it! What’s your favourite Christmas film?
