Mmmm... it's like a Christmas tree, on fire.
Egg nog and cinnamon schnapps, I'd figure it'd be right up your alley.
Feeling merrier already.
You LIKE Christmas.
Haha, love it.
To me, it's just stress. Looking for the perfect tree, perfect presents. Trying for some ideal you can never reach.
There is a perfect Christmas. I've seen it.
I hope not.
Cause then what? End of the road, no more struggle.

I found this movie absolutely delightful! -- who among us hasn't had a snowglobe with a wonderful Xmas scene that we wished we could walk into??
I also loved the contrast of the simple, innocent snowglobe people ( some of the funniest moments was their trying to cope with the world outside their globe) with the depiction of a VERY REAL slice -of -life Brooklyn , NY family--not your "Leave it to Beaver" family, but the way people REALLY behave. Some may find them dysfunctional, but I found them VERY REAL! I also liked the unique idea of making it an interracial family of the interesting combo of African-American and Italian. --a film I'll pull out and watch for holidays again and again!
