Merry Christmas Mr Cactus is what you might hear at today's opening of the It’s a Wonderful Life wonderland in the desert. It seems Frank Capra did some of that iconic scriptwriting in the desert quaintness of La Quinta near Palm Springs. In honor of this weirdness, they’re recreating Bedford Falls in all its caroling, lamp post, glory with screenings of the films, guest activities and instead of angel wings, they're giving away resort goodies. More info here and on the La Quinta site.
