Mr. Christmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year. No, not awards season (in fact much of the talent behind the films we love would probably agree it's one of the worst times of year), but Christmas. Whether you celebrate the holiday or partake in Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Festivus or Merlinpeen, it's just a great time for family, fun, hot chocolate, and some great movies. To ring in the holiday season, we've got this charming short documentary called Mr. Christmas, which follows Bruce Mertz, a Christmas enthusiast who decks out his home in Concord, California for people to check out form all across the country. It's perfect for Christmas. Watch!

Here's Nick Palmer's documentary short Mr. Christmas from Vimeo (via The Playlist):

Mr. Christmas is written and directed by Nick Palmer and paints an offbeat, touching portrait of a man who has spent three decades turning his small Northern California home into a beautiful, towering Christmas display people travel across the country to see. The film has won various awards at the Palm Springs Shortsfest, Aspen Shortfest, Cleveland International Film Fest, Rhode Island International Film Fest, Philadelphia International Film Fest and the California Independent Film Fest, not to mention playing at festivals in Chicago, Little Rock, Nashville, Florida, St. Louis, Portland, Indianapolis and much more. Cool?

I've lived a town away from this guy most of my life. Every year I go by his house to look at the lights, they're always so wonderful. So glad to see you posted this.
