Just 29 memes that prove The Holiday is the best Christmas movie to ever exist

I am crying and horny at the same time

There is no Christmas film more perfect than The Holiday. You can take your Elf, Home Alone and It’s A Wonderful Life and stuff them firmly in your stocking. Nothing will ever beat the heart warming joy, gut wrenching sadness and Christmas spirit you get from watching The Holiday.

Since it was first released in 2006 it has been a staple festive film for a multitude of reasons. Firstly it contains Jude Law at his prime. Secondly it has an incredible cottagecore aesthetic that makes you want to pack your bags and move to deepest Surrey. And most importantly it contains the most wholesome relationship ever – Arthur and Iris. You have to be dead inside to not shed a tear at Iris helping Arthur down the aisle to accept his prize.

It is for those three reasons, amongst many others, why The Holiday is the best Christmas film of all time. Special mention must also go to Cameron Diaz dancing to Mr Brightside in her pyjamas.
