There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus?

Pin It!

Please tell me you know the quote… If not, go out and rent Love, Actually right now! It’s one of my favorite movies. (Hello, Colin Firth!)

Apparently, there were more than three kings present at the birth of Jesus as well:

King Henry (the eighth?), thinking he’s all high-and-mighty, wanted in on the Nativity-Scene action. Or maybe he was just looking to eat the Baby Jesus as a snack? Bad puppy! Thirty “Our Fathers” for you, Henry!

    I knew the quote right away. I think I must have watched Love Actually at least once a week while I was living in Peru. Maybe it was some sort of comforts of home. Colin Firth…. never too much Colin (I Love him in Pride and Prejudice).

    Simple sauteed veg and pasta is always satisfying!

  18. shellyfish says:

    Love Actually is so sweet – I saw it when I was pregnant, and got so choked up with the Liam Neeson character.
    Now I have the song “Henry the VIII” in my head!

  19. Virginia says:
