Last weekend, I caught the last half an hour of It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s one of my favourite Christmas films. A true nostalgic classic that always reminds me of family Christmases when I was younger. Starring James Stewart, Donna Reed and Henry Travers as Clarence Odbody, it is a heart-warming tale, even in those...Read More
We thought about time so differently growing up. We would wish our lives away waiting for that birthday party, that holiday, or that Christmas for that present. We would be wishing we were older too.
