Day 12 of our 12 Days of Christmas
“General opinions are starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed – but I don’t see that. I have a sneaky feeling that love actually is all around.”
LOVE,ACTUALLY is the perfect rom-com that somehow masterfully connects twenty some odd stories with the spirit of Christmas and falling in love. It’s a classic that holds a special place in my heart since its initial release in 2003.
2003 – I saw the film twice in theaters on the same day and proclaimed that director Richard Curtis is the best rom-com creator in the industry.
2004-2014 – I created a tradition to watch LOVE, ACTUALLY every holiday season to remind me that “love actually is all around me.”
2015 – I flew to Heathrow Airport on Christmas eve expecting there to be love all around. Unfortunately, there was not.
2018 – My wife took me to see the limited stage show in Los Angeles during the Christmas season and love was actually all around me, once again.
2020 – 18+ viewings later, I still embark on the experience to “get the shit kicked out of me by love” by re-watching this classic. I am excited to recommend it this Christmas on #SFR.
