The following is an essay I wrote for my Christmas Lit class at North Pole High in the North Pole. My teacher, Mrs. Polar Bear, gave me an A+.
From 1995, While You Were Sleeping
stars Sandra Bullock as Lucy, a lonely woman who falls in love with a man in a coma. This charming romantic comedy is set in Chicago, a great place to spend Christmas
because they have lots of snow and they make their cocoa with Frango mints
Before Lucy meets Coma Boy, she's struggling to get the Christmas tree
she just bought into her apartment. It's so big, she has to hoist it up through her window on a rope. But it's so heavy, she drops it and it breaks the window of the apartment below her. Won't Coma Boy be lucky to get a girl who puts that much effort into Christmas!
Lucy's other problem is that besides her hunk being in a coma, she's never actually met him. But while he's asleep, she does meet his family. And since it's Christmastime
, she gets to experience the warmth and joy of spending the holidays with a loving family, something she's missed since her parents died.
So now, instead of just having a crush on a hot dude in a coma, she's in love with the idea of becoming a part of his family. All because of Christmas
. I don't want to spoil anything for you, but I think the message is that Christmas
makes everything bright and wonderful. And for that, I hang five shining stars
