March 12: National Alfred Hitchcock Day

National Alfred Hitchcock Day, on March 12, celebrates the man behind the movies. Many critics consider Hitchcock to be the greatest filmmaker of all time. His movies may appear a bit dated now (he started when there were only silent movies!), but they still hold a lot of power. (I know you probably think I’m ridiculous, but most of his movies scare me!)

In my opinion, Hitchcock is also the only director and producer that grasped a very important concept. In his own words:

“The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.”

Alfred Hitchcock

In honor of Hitchcock’s classic movie “Rear Window,” today’s scripture is the first reference to “loving thy neighbor.”

“‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”

Leviticus 19:18

By the way, before you celebrate National Alfred Hitchcock Day with a nice evening movie, you should take a long afternoon nap to celebrate Napping Day. Napping Day is held every year after Daylight Savings Time causes us to spring forward and lose an hour of sleep. So, I propose an afternoon nap, followed by dinner and a movie – Hitchcock, of course.
