Merry Christmas!

One of my most favorite holiday movies is the 1994 make of Little Women starring Winona Ryder and Susan Sarandan.  It's a delightful screen adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 novel. 

Story: With her husband off in the U. S. Civil War serving as chaplain for the Union, Marmee is left alone in New England to raise their four daughters, her little women. There is the spirited & imaginative Jo; conservative & sophisticated Meg; fragile & compassionate Beth; and romantic Amy. The girls share a bond that can't be penetrated by outsiders.  As the years pass, the sisters share some of the most cherished and painful memories of coming of age, as Marmee and Aunt March guide them through issues of independence, romance and virtue. 

The story has lived in my heart for many years.  Love how family connection remains strong in the face of tragedies.
