My husband is a nut.
And now half of Elm Street knows it.
We were driving home from Christmas Eve service in the snow and he pulled the truck over and declared he was going to do the George Bailey running down the street yelling “Merry Christmas, Bedford Falls!” bit. On video. So we both got out of the truck and he ran up Elm Street about half a block.
Here’s the video:
Here’s what happened (the sound is horrible):
Jason: (starts running) Merry Christmas, Bedford Falls!
About a million cars and trucks appear from out of nowhere.
Lady in one of the vehicles: What?
Jason: Merry Christmas!
Truck stops near me, the driver likely figuring something’s really wrong.
Jason: Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas, people in jail!
Jason: Merry Christmas, Becky! (jumps in truck.)
I’m sorry I’m laughing, but it was all I could do to keep quiet. As soon as he started running, all these confused people were suddenly there and they kind of ruined it…but I’ll be laughing for days.
