In my oh so humble opinion this is the greatest film for Christmas time. You should (and maybe have) see it at least once this season. If only to hear the famous line “every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings.” For a brief summary of the story George Bailey is a man who has taken over his family business and his main competitor is the richest man in the town (who is extremely evil). When things do not go so well for George’s company he feels like he has failed his family and the people who work for him, and he decided they would be better off without him. As he is about to do something dramatic he has an angelic visit. You should check it out!
