My father passed away in December 1998, less than a week before Christmas. Consequently it was a very sad time for my family....and Miss Betty and I decided we needed something to take our minds off the sadness. So, we started something that became a post-Christmas tradition, which I follow to this day. After Christmas, we had a multi-day viewing of the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice.
It would be an understatement to say that this is my favorite version of P & P. I saw it in 1995, bought it on video when it came out, then DVD, then Special Edition DVD, then Blu-Ray.....and, this year, I bought it through Itunes so I could watch it on my Ipad! That is how I am viewing it this year and it is brilliant!!!!
So that you can join in Miss Betty's and my "particular tradition" (said in an Austen-like manner), here is a clip of some favorite scenes.
