Merry Christmas!

We here at the SSS would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!  We like to watch classic Christmas movies (Scrooge, It's A Wonderful Life, The Bishop's Wife, Miracle On 34th Street, etc.) leading up to the holiday, but with everything going on, it is sometimes difficult.  So this year, I was searching around for a shorter film, and stumbled across this wonderful gem from Warner Bros. in 1945 on YouTube.  I had never seen nor heard of it before, but it has now become part of our holiday tradition.  It packs a lot into its 21 minute run time.  Enjoy!
