What are the holidays without a screening of "It's a Wonderful Life"? And the classic film is even greater on the big screen.

I've got four pairs of tickets to give away to a Dec. 2 showing of the film--which includes a pre-show silent auction and complementary appetizers--at United Artists Circle Centre 9. The event, which I'll be hosting, is a benefit for Indianapolis Downtown Beautification.

All you have to do is enter below with a reason why your life is wonderful. I'll pick four winners at random and contact via e-mail.

Good luck.

  • George Bailey Rocks
    My life is blessed with a wonderful spouse, daughter, son-in-law, parents and parents in law. I am blessed with a good job in very tough economic times. But most importantly I was introduced to "Its a Wonderful Life" when I was 11 years old and on vacation with my family. I remember watching it for the first time on an old black and white TV in a small motel room in Gettyburg, PA. It is by far my favorite movie of all time. "Every time a bell rings an Angel gets their wings!"

    A blessed Thanksgiving to All :)

    My favorite movie of all time. My two boys, 8 & 5, are healthy. My wife is GREAT. Last year, she was on bed rest twice, had two hospital stays, one surgery, and finally gave birth to our twin baby girls, two months prematurely. But the girls are GREAT, crawling and jabbering. I have a rewarding job. My wife has a rewarding job. Life is good, but then again, life has always been good, even in the 'bad' times.

  • Wonderful Life
    I miss the old Saving and Loans even when we had them here in Indianapolis, but, as George Bailey and I eventuality learned . . . it takes time to accept the fact that your life has value and that the influence of a positive individual can make a huge difference in other peopleâ??s life. Even though we might not see it at the time. Iâ??m thankful I finally realize, Iâ??m loved, needed and wanted and my life has had a positive influence in others. The movie reminds and reinforces in each of us what we already have... â??Itâ??s a Wonderful Life.â??
  • I've said it many times, many places...

    My wife is Ho-Ho-Holly - the consummate Christmas lover.

    As it says on my Facebook profile:

    "We started dating because we (informally - after a weird 1st date 18 months before. (never fall asleep sitting on a couch) We dated six weeks, got engaged, and in fewer than six months (12/12/86), we were married.

    Twenty-four years later, I wonder what took me so long."

    I can't imagine any better than I have it now.

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
