“Miracle on 34th Street,” “White Christmas” and “It’s a Wonderful Life,” are three of my favorite Christmas movies. All three stories revolve around people, connections and miracles. Natalie Wood plays second-grade student Susan in “Miracle on 34th Street.” Raised by her mother, Doris, to be practical and not believe in miracles, Susan began to believe in supernatural events after watching a department store Santa (Kris) talk to a girl in her native Dutch. Kris is accused of being crazy and taken to court for representing himself to be Santa Claus, but the case is dismissed after the Post Office delivers mail addressed to Santa to Kris.
