It's hard for me to believe it's been ten years since I ugly cried my way through Love Actually. I went to see the movie alone, (which is one of my favorite things to do), not because I didn't have a boyfriend (I was still with this guy at the time) but because he was in Florida, leaving me to go to the deliciously sappy and unapologetic tearjerker by myself in a packed movie theatre on 42nd Street.
I remember sort of having it together until the signs (ugh, the signs!), and then I basically dry-heaved my way through to the closing credits. It literally took me hours to recover, and I'm fairly certain I broke a few capillaries around my eyes.
In honor of this most epic Christmas lovefest, I've put together a Love Actually screening party mood board for you guys. Throw a party. Wear a turtleneck. Sing along to "All I Want for Christmas Is You".
