It's the final working week of the year here at Aspire, Christmas Day is a mere five days away and we are all very excited. As we work to ensure everything is nice and neatly tied up with a big red bow for clients and candidates alike, our conversation naturally turned to festive traditions, must have dinner items, and of course, favourite Christmas films.
Asking each of my team mates, there were a couple of expected answers - 'The Santa Clause', 'Home Alone' and my personal favorite, 'The Grinch'!
However, the overall champion on the desk was 'Love Actually' which in its own beautiful way has slipped into the hearts of the nation as their top Christmas film!
What's at the top of your festive list?
Few people in the world, for instance, fail to shed a tear during Frank Capra's 'It's a Wonderful Life' (1946). Critic Roger Elbert described the film as "ageless" and "heart-warming", and for many people it is an essential part of their Christmas tradition. But apparently, there is a Christmas film that Britons hold even more dearly to their hearts. According to a Radio Times survey, the nation's favourite Christmas movie is ... 'Love Actually' (2003).
