Love ActuallyChristmas is just six days away, and our bodies couldn't be more ready—what with all that peppermint hot chocolate coursing through our veins and "Run Rudolph Run" worming into permanent residency in our ear canal. But few holiday trappings get us in the mood quite like the romantic comedy "Love Actually."

To be sure, we've never been shy about our affections for this 2003 ensemble flick, which stars some of Britain's biggest talents like Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln. So in a gesture of appreciation (and for no other reason, really), we've rounded up our 10 favorite GIFs illustrating that love actually is all around.

Put on your finest lobster costume, crank the Billy Mack and keep reading past the jump!

February 14 may be the official holiday of all things heart-shaped, candy-coated and rose-scented [insert single lady eye roll here], but if you ask me, Christmas is one darn sexy occasion. What's more romantic than snuggling with your beloved next to a crackling fire? Or stealing a kiss under the mistletoe? Or opening a little blue box from Tiffany's on Christmas morning (a girl can wish!)? Personally, I'll take a yuletide love affair any day over a Valentine's Day schmaltz-fest. So in honor of December 25 and all of its lovey-dovey possibilities, we're counting down the five most romantic Christmas movies of all time. Keep reading after the jump!

"Valentine's Day" is out in theaters, Valentine's Day is around the corner, and the chick flick has never been more relevant. No matter what your go-to fuzzy-feelings inducer might be: "The Notebook," "Pride & Prejudice" or "Gone With The Wind," we have a certain set of guidelines to determining what the best chick flicks out there are.

But first, the type of film we are trying to identify needs to be cleared up. A quick glance at Urban Dictionary's definitions of "chick flick" leads us to become more and more disappointed. From "A film that has a happy, fuzzy, ridiculously unrealistic ending" to "A movie that embodies all that is wrong with the world," these definitions don't seem to capture the side of chick flicks that makes us love them.

I saw "Love Actually" for the first time February of this year (yes a little late on the boat, I know!), and from my first viewing, I realized that it's one of the greatest films about love and Christmas to come out in the past decade. The 2003 romantic comedy has a whole slew of British acting greats that hopefully everyone has heard of, but the best part is that it's not headlined by your run-of-the-mill 20-somethings.

Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson top the cast credits, with Laura Linney adding in an American flair and Kiera Knightly took on her small role the same year "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" hit theaters and she, in turn, got huge.
