M.F.T. #18: The Holiday.

Everyone has their favorite Christmas Classic: A Christmas Carol. The Grinch. It's a Wonderful Life. ELF. Miracle on 34th Street. The Santa Clause. White Christmas. Home Alone 1, 2, or 3. Charlie Brown Christmas Carol. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. The Nightmare Before Christmas.
These are all awesome movies but hands down, my favorite holiday movie is The Holiday! I used to fall asleep to it in college so I have seen the first 35 minutes of it probably about 100 times and the movie in its entirety, a good 20. And as I try to trick my mind in to shutting off so I can fall asleep before sunrise, I will watch it again tonight for the 400th time. I am hoping I will have dreams of meeting Jude Law during a house swap in a quaint, little British town. Good night, Jude moon.

 My Favorite Quote from The Holiday: I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true.

I couldn't agree more! I am about half way thought watching it again (for the 5th or 6th time) It's sheer perfection and so are Kate and Jude.
