Merry Christmas fellow bloggers. Welcome to this week's edition of Movie Clip Wednesday. This week's theme was quite easy to choose. Remember how this works. I give you a theme, you find a movie clip around three minutes long then drop by here and say that you're up and running and we'll all pop over and have a gander. The magnificent Boxer started this a couple of week's or so ago, maybe longer, anyway we all have to keep it going.
So many good movies to choose from. I'm not going to lie, I'm expecting a lot of It's a Wonderful Life and a lot of Christmas Vacation clips and that's fine with me. It will be interesting to see how many blog jinx's there are this week. I went with A Christmas Story. There were a number of reasons but I think the biggest was it reminded me of growing up in Malta (wow, what were the odds of that?). Just everything about it, the clothes, having to take care of my brother on the way to school, the way the kids acted in class, just all of it. Too many good lines, too many things that happened that made me think of Ralph, Jim and St. Mary's. The hats, the kid sticking his tongue on a flagpole. I love this movie.

Here's a trailer for the movie "Rare Exports: A Christmale Tale". Looks good. A little different spin on Santa in this one.
