Grab a steaming cup of hot chocolate, a good dose of whipped cream, the right soundtrack * and immerse yourself in this harrowing and extraordinary story with an unpredictable ending and noir atmosphere.

Winter. Roll neck, hot mugs, good dishes and comforters. Fireplace. The snow. Chat with friends in front of board games.

I always imagined that I would spend the winter like this in my personal house. I don’t know if I thought I was becoming a millionaire or just as a good screenwriter I let myself be carried away by fiction, because I live in my own home, winter is coming, but I not only don’t have a fireplace, nor rooms for everyone, but I will work about 12h at the day so I doubt I’ll want to prepare delicious banquets or play after dinner …

It would be nice to have a life Friends style where you live together, work occasionally, spend your free time together and despite this you also have time to have different love relationships and not; but the reality is a little closer to Grey’s Anatomy

The streets full of lights , the cheeks flushed , the hands rubbing between the gloves , the music that creeps in every corner of the decorated streets .
There are those who criticize it , those who love it , those who try to ignore it , who are waiting for it the whole year , butChristmascertainly does not get unnoticed .

The ads become all themed , kids are eager to get presents , loneliness runs over those who do not want to share .
Sitting in a corner of a chocolate shop , 12warm and protected from the elements and resentments, you can order afilled cup of delicious hot brown liquid plenty of cream, a varied assortment of small bon – bon and throw yourself into the soft romance ” Chocolatby Joanne Harris[1]no, even if Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche…
