We were watching Elf at the weekend, starring Will Ferrell as Buddy, a human who was brought up by Elves at the North Pole. He's lived all his life there, and when he finds out he's a human he goes to New York to meet his real dad.
What I really loved about it is Buddy's excitement and wonder about everything. He embraces life and you can't help but get caught up in his excitement.
It's wonderful when we're in touch with our inner child, and see the wonder in the smallest of things...
