Bust out the holiday sweaters, string the lights. Well, spend most of your time untangling said lights. Incessant Christmas carols on the radio and somehow, you don’t mind. It’s after Thanksgiving, no one can berate you for being too jolly too soon.
For many of us, Christmas movies really bring the season together. Families all over the world cuddle up on the couch and watch the same movies year after year, enjoying them more each time.
Here are a few quotes from some of our favorite holiday classics to help get you in the mood!!
“Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas . . . perhaps . . .means a little bit more!” -The Grinch in How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Talk about character development!
Ralphie: “I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!”
Mrs. Parker: “No, you’ll shoot your eye out” – A Christmas Story
Who wouldn’t want one of those? Though he did manage to shoot his eye…
“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup”. – Elf
Okkaaayyy. Slow down, elves. We don’t recommend this diet by a long shot.
“Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?” -It’s a Wonderful Life
“Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here.” -National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Forget holiday sweaters, get the strait jacket.

Once again, character development. Though it did take a few ghosts and some life-threatening experiences for it to happen.
“Christmas snow can never disappear completely. It sometimes goes away for almost a year at a time and takes the form of spring and summer rain. But you can bet your boots that when a good, jolly December wind kisses it, it will turn into Christmas snow all over again.” -Santa Claus in Frosty the Snowman
Aw! Precious. “Bet your boots” it doesn’t get much cuter than that.

Buddy said it best. Belt those carols like nobodys business.
