Question Of The Week
Besides, of course, one of the all time greats, Christmas Vacation, I do believe Love Actually is my favorite Christmas movie. I love everything about it, but what impacts me everytime is Hugh Grant's monologue at the beginning:
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."
And, this couple.....one of several in the movie who come together.....these two are by far, my favorite. Such romance.
If you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend it. It's a bit quirky at times, but the message is so sweet. It's all about love......and Christmas is just that.......a time for love!
Question: What's your favorite Christmas movie?
