‘Tis the season…

Yes, it really is that time of year again guys! Seriously, where has this year gone?

It seems like just yesterday we were basking in the glorious heat, and now? Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m piling on as many layers as Joey in ”The One Where No One’s Ready”!

But even though the weather is doom and gloom, there is still so much excitement that comes with this time of year…

From advent calenders that we promise not to open early (but despite our best intentions, fail miserably) and an abundance of festive themed food (goodbye summer waistline!), to the heartwarming (and let’s face it, drunken) family get togethers. But most importantly? You guessed it – Christmas movies!

And what would Christmas be without the best movie of all: Elf!

This holiday favourite has been enriching our festive celebrations since 2003. Join us on our journey through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the Sea of Swirly Twirly Gum Drops…Just kidding! We’ve done all the leg work so you don’t have to…

1. Will Ferrell Wasn’t The First Choice For Buddy!

I know what you’re thinking. How can this be? Will Ferrell is the perfect oversized elf! We think so too, but when David Berenbaum first wrote the script in 1993, it was Jim Carrey he had in mind. Since the project took a further ten years to get off the ground, Carrey was unable to take on the leading role – but he did go on to become the notorious Grinch!
