Do You Believe in Santa Claus?

Do you remember staying up late with eyes glued to the weather channel hoping for school to be canceled? How about tumbling down a molehill that felt like a mountain on a Flexible Flyer sled? Maybe your snow days were spent chugging cocoa while curled under a blanket and watching movies.

For many of us, Christmas isn't just a day. It's a frame of mind. If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit, look no further than this week’s double feature: Miracle on 34th Street (1947/1994). You’ll want to embrace your inner child, because this week we’re asking do you believe in Santa Clause?

We’ll hear testimony on what makes a good remake. We’ll examine the evidence to see how much influence nostalgia has in our affection for these Christmas classics. We’ll pour out our eggnog for the forgotten friend and unsung hero of children everywhere…the Mall Santa.

You’ll want to check this one out before the parade passes by.
