About the Author


Helga Hayse

Helga Hayse educates people on the role that money plays in family relationships. Her latest book Money, Love & Legacy: Conversations That Matter Between Generations is about the urgency for adult children and their parents to open the intergenerational dialogue they need to have about financial, legal, emotional, medical and end-of-life issues before it’s too late. She recounts her personal experience with transforming the pain of her own unfinished business into regenerative legacy between herself and her parents.

Her previous book “Don’t Worry about a Thing, Dear” - Why Women Need Financial Intimacy helps women understand why education about marital finances is vital for their protection if marriage ends.

Baby Boomer Favorites, Christmas Movies - Watch and Enjoy!

* "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946) - Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed star in this classic story of what life is really all about during the Christmas Season. Still #1 in my book.

* "Fred Claus" (2007) - How could you not like Santa's brother? Silly movie but fun to watch. Paul Giamatti, Vince Vaughn, Kevin Spacey, Elizabeth Banks, and Kathy Bates pull together a nice finish to a variety of problems at the North Pole.

* "A Christmas Story" (1983) - Another classic. Ralphie's quest to get a BB gun for Christmas. So many great scenes in this film starring Darren McGavin, Melinda Dillon, and Peter Billingsley. The movie is narrated by Ralphie at a later age as he looks back on his comical family life around Christmas time. This is stuff we have all experienced in our own families.

* "The Holiday" (2006) - Nice romantic comedy that develops around Christmas time. Four people (Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black) come together for various reasons to enjoy the Holiday and love wins out.

* "A Christmas Carol" (1984) - This Charles Dickens book has been made and remade as a movie several times and all of them are good because of the terrific story. I personally think the best production involved George C. Scott as "Scrooge". Wonderful moral to this film is good for all ages.
