We’ll follow the old man…

Congratulations to Rena, who was the first to guess my all-time favorite holiday movie: that Bing Crosby/Danny Kaye classic “White Christmas.” Special props to lotusloquax who also picked “White Christmas,” but was second to do so. Every single time the general walks into the theatre at his old inn, and all the army men who served with him in WWII are there, and they all stand up to attention — man, I’m getting goosebumps just writing about it. And that’s nothing compared to the waterworks that pour out of my eyes every time I watch it. But you guys came up with some other really good choices as well!
So, Rena, email me with your mailing address, and I’ll get a copy of Let It Snow out to you promptly!
All this talk about weeping has got me thinking. What book always brings you to tears? Or, if you’re me, what book caused such weeping on first read that though it’s one of your favorites, you’ve never managed to read it again after that first, impressionable time? (That would be The Chestry Oak by Kate Seredy.) Sing out in the comments!
