Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking and Happy Birthday Frank Capra

Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Today is a very special day. A very special person was born on this day. That special day was May 18, 1897 and that special person was the famed film director Frank Capra. Mr. Capra would be 116 years old today. In 1934 Frank Capra directed the hit movie It Happened One Night, which became the first film to win all five top Oscars including Best Picture. He also directed such fan favorites as Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, Lost Horizon, You Can't Take It With You, Meet John Doe, and one of our all time favorites Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. If Capra would have stopped there he would have been in the film directors Hall of Fame. Obviously he did not stop. During World War ll, he directed or co-directed 7 documentaries war information films called Why We Fight which won him an Academy Award in 1942 for Documentary Feature. Frank Capra is probably best known for his 1946 movie called It's A Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. It's A Wonderful Life is considered one of the best Christmas movies of all time and is also considered one of the most inspirational movies of all time. There is no doubt Frank Capra is one of the greatest movie directors of all time. 

So that question that bothers everybody from time to time is what to get that someone who is hard to buy for? What Birthday gift can you get for someone who is 116 and produced such great movies? We were thinking a tie, but it just did not seem appropriate for this occasion and ties seem to be a much better present for Father's Day. Finally we asked the great answering device the digital vaults at abullrun if they could help us on this question. As they always do, they did help and the answer was the Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking. Well, of course the man who produced one of the greatest Christmas movies all time should be honored with the man who helps brings toys to kids on Christmas. You know that jolly old fellow with the white beard, we think they call him Santa.

On this special day of May 18, what a better item to feature for a special man on his special day than the Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking. You know what is so great about this Christmas stocking? Let me tell you, it has everything that is special with Christmas. There is of course Santa, how about that Christmas tree, a nice fire going in the fireplace with stockings hanging on the mantle, and something we all like and that is toys, and look at those toys. The digital vaults at abullrun wanted us to remind you that these cross stitch stocking projects can take up to 6 months to complete so you might want to start them now so that this special Christmas stocking can be hanging above your fire place this Christmas. The finished size of this classic Christmas stocking is 18" (45.7 cm).
