Two Christmas Videos via YouTube: Change for a Dollar and The Christmas Story

I was working on a post yesterday about Christmas and Advent and how I'm never really ready and how that's ok in the end.  Shockingly, I didn't finish writing it yet.

Yes, that last sentence was drenched with a healthy dose of self-deprecating sarcasm.  ;-)

I may get back to my keyboard and get it done; until I do, I did want to share a couple of YouTubes worth watching, especially if the insanity of the season is making you feel more like Grinch and less like George Bailey at the end of It's a Wonderful Life*.

"Change for a Dollar" popped up in my Google Reader last week courtesy of both Patrick Madrid and Fallible Blogma. Kleenex Warning - it made me cry a little bit (yes, it does happen on rare occasion!).

It never ceases to amaze me to consider how the little things we do, the little spur-of-the-moment acts of kindness and goodness that we make toward others in the midst of our busy days, can have the biggest effect and impact on their lives. I think I'll be dropping some pennies around town...

Thanks to Fr Schninppel for sharing this version of A Christmas Story. It's adorable, touching, and OMGOlly!!  The NZ accents of the little kids?!  TOO cute.

Merry Christmas all!

*My fave Christmas movie of all time.  And no matter what, it is a pretty wonderful life, ya know.  ;-)
