I know I’m supposed to write opinion pieces about current events, but sometimes you have to take a break from writing about the high school, teacher salaries, road construction, pending legislation, and write a light-hearted column about Christmas movies.

What prompted this article (that I’m gratefully writing from the news’ office. Thank goodness I’m done with quarantine.) is that I received an email about the most popular Christmas movies.
