WVCC Staff Picks - 2020 Holiday Edition

Is Die Hard a holiday movie? The debate rages on...

We have had a handful of requests from our members and volunteers to share a bit more about ourselves. Accordingly, we've created a new "Staff Picks" series for your reading enjoyment.

Saul Newton, Executive Director

Favorite holiday song:
I have always been a fan of classic Christmas music, like Bing Crosby's "White Christmas."
 
Least favorite holiday song:
I can't listen to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You." I have to skip it or change the channel.
 
Favorite classic holiday movie:
The only correct answer to this question is Die Hard.
 
Favorite non-classic holiday movie:
I direct you to my previous answer.
