Jo writing, LMA, Victorian

Christmas Eve at Orchard House

The 1994 movie of Little Women has everything I want in a Christmas movie: sisters (loving, competing, fighting, forgiving), Northeastern US winter landscapes, swoony music, kittens, a broad emotional range, nostalgia for my childhood, Victorian houses and clothes, and of course Christmas.

Strongly recommended for anyone whose life has been shaped by Louisa May Alcott, or people who moved from the Northeast to more merciful climes and want to feel nostalgic about the landscape and climate without having to actually shovel any snow. Also for young writers or people who need a good cry.

A merry Christmas to all who celebrate it.
