The A To Z Of Richard Curtis | Xmas
X
Xmas

In CurtisWorld™ time is measured in shopping days until Christmas and carol singers are usually just around the corner to pep up the spirits of its bruised lovers. Really, there's only Ebenezer Blackadder to trample on our snowmen and dose festive spirits with a helping of bile. In fact, Blackadder's Christmas Carol is the perfect antidote for crotchety, Christmas-hating types who've just watched Love Actually or gawped at Colin Firth's Christmas jumper in Bridget Jones. As Blackadder himself puts it: "I trust Christmas brings to you its traditional mix of good food and violent stomach cramp." And if the kids aren't quite ready for that, well, Curtis' children's book The Empty Stocking is even more heart-warming.
