It's a Wonderful Life

I watched It's a Wonderful Life with my kids for the first time.
At first they moaned and groaned at the idea of a black-and-white movie.

But I told them it was my favorite movie and they were going to watch it with me.

There was heavy sighing and eye rolling... they laughed a little at the 'special effects' at the beginning... but then they got into it.
They laughed and cried at all the right parts.

A couple of nights later, H asked me "How do you know someone is bad just by shaking their hand?" ...referencing George Bailey shaking Mr. Potter's hand when he offered him a job

I said that I didn't really know, but you can feel it. Sort of like The Dark Side in Star Wars (I use The Force and The Dark Side to explain a lot).

"Hmmm," he pondered "I haven't met anyone like that yet."

...and, H, I hope you never do!
