With Christmas right around the corner I’ve been watching lots of Christmas movies and on the other night was Scrooged with Bill Murray. Yeah that’s right, you know I love a good Bill Murray movie. Scrooged is one of my favorite takes on the Christmas Carol. I think it’s my favorite because its about the television industry; I can relate since I’ve been a part of that world (even if the film does take place in the 80’s). Those late nights, often being under appreciated with the goal just to get more viewers or get a commercial out to sell one product and often working on Christmas eve. What’s great about this Christmas movie and pretty much every Christmas movie is that it gets people in the Christmas spirit. Sure it might be sappy and cliche but for whatever reason it makes us all smile a little easier this time of year. The Christmas spirit is in all of us; we all need something once a year to distract from work and help us to remember what’s really essential in our lives.
This time of year don’t forgot what’s really important… and it’s not work. Happy Holidays.
