GOOD DEEDS: Holiday Movie Quiz

It’s that time of season. So, let’s admit. We all love a good Christmas movie! And there are plenty of good ones.  

Now I’ll let you in on a little secret, some of my favorite Christmas films deal with the home and the holidays. Maybe that is because here at the Norfolk Registry of Deeds my fine staff and I are handling land record documents for the biggest asset most of us have – Our home. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence!

Anyway, “Home is where the heart is.” A memorable holiday movie can make you laugh and pull on your heartstrings. Here are two of my favorite classic Christmas movies. Although I must say the Christmas movie “Elf” is one of my favorite Christmas films. It is uplifting and funny.

So, pour yourself an eggnog, munch on a holiday cookie, sit by a roaring fire, and take this year’s holiday movie quiz.
