Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Rated NR

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade supervisor, Doris Walker, hires a man looking like Santa to be in the parade. Little does she know, that he claims to be the real deal and soon he is institutionalized as insane. What could Doris do but try to defend him. Starring Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Edmund Gwenn, Gene Lockhart, Natalie Wood

No wonder that this is a classic. The acting was superb and the script was intelligent. Of course, its beyond its years in showing a divorced mother caring for her child. It also tells the true meaning of the season…the season of giving. Of putting other people above you. Which during the season gets lost sometimes and we lose sight of what matters. This isn’t about whether Santa is real, it’s what’s important in our lives. That’s why this is one of top christmas films to watch every year.
