What's your favourite word?

Children spell out the word love

Love is our favourite word, according to a new report.

It's closely followed by chocolate, smile and happy, while other top words are family, sunshine and holiday.

But we want to know what YOUR favourite word is. It could be one of these or a completely different word!
