Lads, The Holiday is on RTÉ2 tonight meaning it's officially Christmas

Well, looks like we're staying in.

Tonight's TV has just got very tasty thanks to the addition of The Holiday, easily the greatest Christmas film of all time. Even though this statement is one of great debate.

But, yes the 2006 hit flick starring Jack Black, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Kate Winslet airs on RTÉ2 tonight at 9:30pm.

If you haven't seen The Holiday before, I truly have no words but tonight is the night you can redeem yourself, pour a glass of red and sit back, relax and fall in love with the characters, the storyline and the Christmas feels this film can't help but give off.

A quick recap for those who don't know the storyline off by heart:

Dumped and depressed, English rose Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky in love Californian Amanda for a much-needed break. Iris finds herself in a palatial Hollywood mansion while Amanda navigates the lanes of a picture-perfect English village. Soon enough, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads perfect for a romantic pick-me-up.

It's just cheesy magic.

Again, tonight, RTÉ2, 9:30pm, that's all you need to remember.
