It Is Never Christmas Without The Holiday Movies And Quotes to Get You Into the Spirit



There are just some traditions you can’t mess about with period!

Starbucks with their red and green festive cups in December and Christmas movies galore with memorable lines that stick in your mind.

Here are some of the best movie quotes that never seem to go out of date even as decades pass us by:

‘Love Actually’ (2003)

Mark: “But for now, let me say…Without hope or agenda…Just because it’s Christmas…And at Christmas, you tell the truth…To me, you are perfect.”

‘Elf’ (2003)

Buddy: “I planned out our whole day. First, we’ll make snow angels for two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.”

‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ (1993)

Jack Skellington: “There’s children throwing snowballs, instead of throwing heads, they’re busy building toys and absolutely no one’s dead.”

‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’ (1989)

Ellen Griswold: “I don’t know what to say, but it’s Christmas, and we’re all in misery.”

‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ (2000)

The Grinch: “The nerve of those Whos. Inviting me down there-on such short notice! Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn’t allow it. 4:00, wallow in self-pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one; 5:30, jazzercise; 6:30, dinner with me – I can’t cancel that again; 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing…I’m booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9, I could still be done in time to lay in bed, staring at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?”

‘Jack Frost’ (1998)

Jack: “My balls are freezing. I never thought I’d say that with a smile on my face.”

‘Bad Santa’ (2003)

‘Home Alone’ (1990)



Kevin McCallister: “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!”
