All I want for Christmas is... Love Actually

Why does Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" get on my nerves, while Olivia Olson's cover version makes me smile? Because Olivia Olson sings the song in Love Actually, the movie my family likes so much that we eventually made a rule that we would only watch it in December. Before this rule, Love Actually was just a movie, not really a Christmas movie. I still think it's about love, coincidentally happening around Christmas. But now all parts of it are Christmasy.

Christmas tradition with us as well. Don't think I could watch it another time of year even if I tried :)
