As you know, I’m a movie buff. I love watching musicals even though it makes no sense to start singing for no reason. I can sit and watch the old classics all day. There’s something about Christmas movies that strike a nerve – especially those with tons of nostalgia mixed in. Hallmark movies, even though filled with much the same story line and happy endings, we need a little bit of happy right now. The holiday season this year won’t be the same as Christmases past, but it will certainly be memorable.
Here are a few quotes from Christmas movies. See how many you can guess. Some will jump right out at you, while others take a little more thought.
“No one should be alone on Christmas.”
“We plunged into the cornucopia quivering with desire and the ecstasy of unbridled avarice.”
“Keep the change, you filthy animal.”
“You put on the suit, you’re the big guy.”
“It’s a one-year membership in the jelly-of-the-month club.”
“I wish I had a million dollars…hot dog!”
“Christmas isn’t just a day. It’s a frame of mind.”
“I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.”
“I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year.”
“You have such a pretty face, you should be on a Christmas card.”
Here are the movies they’re connected to. Can you guess them all?
