We do! The Beeb confirmed that festivities have begun in earnest when, this afternoon/evening, it screened "The Great Escape".

For the few who've never seen this Great British Christmas Institution, here's the classic bike scene:

OK, the movie's probably not that "PC" these days, but the Beeb had no qualms about showing it... again.

Top stuff!

    Had a conversation with my better half over lunch today (sitting in a cafe with the radio on) about how I hated christmas music. but later sitting in the house on my own couldnt help but watch The Great Escape. Somethings about christmas you just have to enjoy.

    My better half decided that sending me to watch said classic was the best way to keep me out of the kitchen while she was in baking mode.

    She comes up with some brilliant ideas, eh? 🙂
