Christmas is nearly here and of course that means television is dominated by the same old Christmas movies we get every year. You get the timeless and heartwarming ones (It's A Wonderful Life) and the awful ones that do their utmost to break your Christmas spirit (Jingle All The Way). Then a few years ago a movie called 'The Holiday' was released which brought joy into the hearts of millions and, more importantly, introduced the idea of home swapping to people all over the world.
For you unfortunate souls who aren't familiar with The Holiday here is a quick overview from IMDb:
Two women troubled with guy-problems swap homes in each other's countries, where they each meet a local guy and fall in love.
It stars Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet & Jack Black who all fall in love. In it, Cameron Diaz's character swaps her house in Los Angeles for Kate Winslet's pad in the English countryside. How it didn't win the Oscar for Best Picture I'll never know.
