Everyone has a favorite classic holiday movie, and I'm sure Elf often tops the list. If you're a lover of the Will Ferrell holiday classic like me, you'll be excited to know that you and the family can enjoy the movie FREE Friday, Dec. 14.

The family friendly holiday classic follows Buddy, Ferrell's character, who was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs, a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results. It really is laughs from beginning to end, pleasing audiences of all ages.

The Zion Lutheran Church is opening it's doors to families for a free showing of Elf in a few weeks, and are inviting families to bring a optional donation of a small person care item, such as socks, gloves or hats. In addition to the free showing, complimentary popcorn will also be served. Children are invited to bring blankets and/or sleeping bags to snuggle up with during the movie.

The movie starts at 7 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church, 74 First Street in Pittsfield, right next to The Common.
