HO, HO, HOME!
- Jimmy Stewart/George Bailey hates his house almost as much as he hates his life; that is, until he realizes he truly loves them both.
- Macaulay Culkin defends his house tooth and nail (and tar/feathers/blowtorch) against invasion while his family is away.
- Clark Griswold endeavors to make his home the most festive, decorated home in the neighborhood, much to the chagrin of his area’s power grid…
- The Family Stone gather at their childhood home, a picturesque Italianate that is reminiscent of a picture postcard with snow covered evergreens all around. Never mind that they’re all completely crazy, but at least the setting is gorgeous, right?
The list goes on and on.
You see, the concept of “home” is not just four walls and a roof. “Home” is a character in your own personal story. It’s the one of a kind feeling that you get from the locations in your life where tears are shed, giggles are heard and memories are made.
I hope that your home is worthy of that honor and serves you well. I hope it is a welcoming space that overflows with warmth, hospitality and a sense of community befitting the true “reason for the season.” It is one of the goals we at VV&W have all year – to help our clients find that special place to call their own.
May you and your loved ones make many happy memories this season in the spot you call “home.” And, in the immortal words of Al Stillman, lyricist for the song “Home for the Holidays” (note: best version is by The Carpenters):
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays, you can’t beat home, sweet home”
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
