Okay, I admit I had never seen this movie until my huband and I started dating in the early 90s. This is his favorite Christmas movie and I admit I do enjoy it, but definitely not to the same extent as he does. I really think it is a "guy thing"!
I just found this article on the web about the house from the movie being turned into a museum by another fan of the movie. If you've seen this movie and enjoyed it, check out this article.
