i'm guilty of loving cliche laden christmas movies. who doesn't love watching christmakah movies while piled on the couch, wrapped up in a down comforter with a cup of hot chocolate and cookies?
every year during the holiday season, there are certain must-see movies i have to watch. it's become quite the tradition since i was wee girl.
every winter my family would watch the following movies aired on tv: merry christmas mr bean, christmas vacation, the wizard of oz and of course, what christmas would not be complete without the sound of music? and although not the conventional christmas fare, my brothers and i would also delight in watching die hard too.
over the past few years, i've added new holiday favourites to my yearly viewings. ever since will ferrell donned on the green felt coat and shoes with upturned toes, i've been watching elf come every december. love elf. love will ferrell. elf is the one movie that threatens to topple my #1 christmas-y movie of all, love actually.
LOVE love actually, the ultimate feel-good holiday movie. i just finished watching it too. never fails, the movie makes me cry, laugh and smile; sometimes at the same time. big fan of writer and producer richard curtis.
and just because i love scores so very much.
i've watched love actually not only because it's just days before xmas but to also get me in the mood because i'll be in london for christmas and new years. i have 2 weeks off from work and i'll be spending one week in london, arriving on christmas eve and flying back on new years day.
i get to visit with my friend chris again. yay! my friend michelle from new york, whom i'm rendez-vous'ing with, will also be traveling for her first time to london. whoo-hooo!
CAN NOT WAIT.
