Lyrics by Irving Berlin, Sung by Bing Crosby, Movie: Holiday Inn (1942)
One of my Christmas traditions among friends is the annual debate over the stars, the songs, and the plot lines involved in the duo of Bing Crosby holiday classic movies Holiday Inn and White Christmas. Danny Kaye or Fred Astaire? Which one had Rosemary Clooney, or the General?
We all know the answers – sort of – but for a few moments, we behave as if we don’t for the fun of the debate. Silly tradition? Most definitely. But we never miss it.
Last week, a friend called to invite me to a special movie theater screening of White Christmas. There was a great appeal simply in seeing a holiday favorite on the big screen as is was originally shown. The kicker was that the movie screening was a sing along! Audience participation – big time! Seriously, someone put some thought into this. Everyone was given a bag of fake snow to throw during the snow scenes, everyone in the audience would start to cough when someone on screen lit up a smoke, and everyone sang their holiday hearts out.
We had a blast.
So yes, I’ve got plenty to be thankful for this time of year. Holiday traditions, classic holiday movies, music and TV shows. I’m especially thankful for great girlfriends who invite me to share crazy new experiences and in the end, create some wonderful memories and a new Christmas tradition.
Next year, I’ll remember my Santa cap to keep the snow out of my hair!
