 Disclosure: I will be provided with a complimentary ticket from the vendor in exchange for promoting this event and hosting a giveaway. However, all views shared are mine and mine alone.

This one-night-only virtual event takes place December 11, 2022 at 5:00 PM PT, 8:00 PM ET

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas...minus the snow here in New England.  Everyone is decorating the outside of their houses with Christmas lights, inflatables and more, and decorated and lit up trees are starting to peek out the windows as you drive by houses.  I love this time of year, not just because of the holiday music, excuse to bake and eat cookies and more, but, also because I get to watch holiday favorites with my family.  One classic movie that is a must watch at least twice this time of year is "It's a Wonderful Life."  I make a point to have it playing in the background when we put up and decorate the tree at the beginning of November, and then when I am wrapping gifts a few days before Christmas, I will put it on and watch it by myself. I grew up watching this holiday classic with my parents, and have not missed a Christmas without watching and singing along.  

Being such a huge fan of "It's a Wonderful Life," I was over the moon excited when I heard that for one night only there would be a special on-air table read of this movie, done by Christina Applegate (who just got her must deserved star on the Walk of Fame), Brendan Fraser (who is a stand out this year for his film, The Whale), Sue Ann Pien, and James Cromwell, to name a few.  This event will also include a musical performance by Jennifer Hudson (which I really excited to see and listen to, as she always puts a nice spin on classic songs).  

What a fun way to count down to Christmas and enjoy quality time with family, as you gather round and tune in to the Online Table Read of "It's a Wonderful Life," along with a silent auction, and live Q&A via social commerce platform Whatnot. I, for one, can't wait until this Sunday, December 11th at 8PM EST to watch this with my family.  We plan to watch the movie directly after this event, as we sip on cocoa and freshly baked cookies that the girls and I will make earlier in the day.
