Watching Love Actually has become a Christmas tradition for Amanda and I. We've always loved watching it - beginning to end - and have many favorite lines.
We watched it over the holidays recently, and enjoyed it as usual. Then the damn Beach Boys fired up at the end; Amanda lost it, and then I lost it.
We laughed about the meltdown the next day, but I'll remember it because it resulted in one of those lovely long hugs. Those hugs where no-one wants to let go, where you forget where or how you're holding on to the other person, where you communicate without speaking or moving.
