December 1: It’s a Wonderful Life
It’s a wonderful film. Frank Capra’s inverted take on A Christmas Carol stars Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, a good man who’s spent a lifetime giving up on his dreams in order to keep life in his small town humming. When a guardian angel named Clarence finds a despondent George poised to jump off a bridge, he shows George what life would’ve been like had he never been born.  1946, 132 minutes

December 8: We’re No Angels
Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray and Peter Ustinov play three escaped inmates who hatch a plan to steal from a shopkeeper on Christmas. But their plans change when they find themselves actually growing to like their target and his family. Besides, the luckless merchant is apparently about to lose his shirt, as his business is unraveling. So, instead of robbing him, the convicts decide to help him, a mission that proves wildly complicated.  1955, 105 minutes

December 15: Scrooged – PG-13
Cold-hearted TV exec Bill Murray is about to discover the true meaning of Christmas — the hard way. Director Richard Donner’s wild, woolly spin on Dickens’s A Christmas Carol sees Murray visited by three high-spirited spirits.  1988, 101 minutes.

December 22: White Christmas

In this Christmas musical, Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye play war buddies turned entertainers who fall for two sisters. The boys follow the girls to a resort owned by their former commanding officer, and he’s in danger of losing the place. 1954, 120 minutes

December 29 Edward Scissorhands – PG-13
An inventor dies before developing hands for his creation, a boy named Edward who instead has scissors at the end of each arm. Edward lives a monastic existence until an Avon lady adopts him and takes him to live in the pastel paradise of suburbia. 1990, 105 minutes.
