Her eyes open widely in joy as she purchases not one, not two, not three, but FOUR holly-covered wreaths. It’s the one she likes, the one she always buys for the windows of her Italian restaurant in Cleveland. This is, as she explains to a colleague who walks into a low-key culinary Santa’s workshop outpost, her first Christmas without her mother. Decorating with an abundance of tinsel garlands is just how she cheers herself up.

Amazin’ Avenue Recommends: Christmas movies and specials

This classic airs on NBC every Christmas Eve and my family always watches it together. It uses the premise of showing George Bailey a world in which he was never born to illustrate one of the most central tenants of the human condition - the fact that each of us touches so many lives in ways we do not even realize and that, given the choice, one should always choose kindness. Mr. Potter is the type of villain that will never go out of style - the embodiment of bitterness and greed. I’m not one that gets choked up at movies that often, but this one makes me misty every time. “Remember, no man is a failure who has friends,” is a quote I’ve always wanted to have framed or tattooed on me because it is such a beautiful and simple sentiment. And it’s true. It is the very spirit of the holiday season to remember this message and practice gratefulness for everything we have and the ones we love.
