Famous Christmas Movie Quotes 

There’s just something heartwarming about the idea of snuggling up on a couch armed with hot cocoa (stirred with a candy cane for festivity points), watching a holiday classic that you probably haven’t seen since last year. Thankfully, there’s a great variety of Christmas movies out there, so there’s always a chance to mix it up with a black-and-white throwback or with a box office blazer from the early 2000s. What I love the most about Christmas movies is, by far, their inherent cheesiness. So without further delay, here are the cream of the crop Christmas movie quotes.
"If You Look For It, I've Got A Sneaky Feeling You'll Find That Love Is Actually All Around" — Love Actually (2003)
"Rudolph, With Your Nose So Bright, Won’t You Guide My Sleigh Tonight?" — Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
Kate: “This is Christmas. The season of perpetual hope. And I don’t care if I have to get out on your runway and hitchhike. If it costs me everything I own, if I have to sell my soul to the devil himself, I am going to get home to my son.” See? Christmas: the season of doing whatever it takes to be with the people you love.
Kevin: “This is extremely important. Will you please tell Santa that instead of presents this year, I just want my family back? No toys. Nothing but Peter, Kate, Buzz, Megan, Linnie, and Jeff. And my aunt and my cousins. And if he has time, my Uncle Frank. Okay?”
And when you think about how sociopathic Kevin’s Uncle Frank was, Kevin’s request is even more heartwarming and tear-inducing.
Buddy: “I think you’re really beautiful and I feel really warm when I’m around you and my tongue swells up. So...do you wanna eat food?”
Probably the only realistic depiction of dating in Christmas films.
Clarence: “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?”
To repeat to yourself on your worst of days, regardless of season.
Clarence: “No man is a failure who has friends.”
I’m not crying. You’re crying. Don’t look at me.
Kevin: “If you won’t use your heart, who cares if it gets broken? If you just keep it to yourself, maybe it’ll be like my rollerblades. When you do decide to try it, it won’t be any good. You should take a chance. Got nothing to lose.”
Daniel: “Sam, you’ve got nothin’ to lose and you’ll always regret it if you don’t. I never told your mum enough. I should have told her every day, because she was perfect every day. You’ve seen the films, kiddo. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”
Ralphie: “My father worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium, a master.”
Del: “You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you, but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings. Well, you think what you want about me, I’m not changing. I like...I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.”
Jack: “Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it!”
Or: how to explain the spirit of Christmas despite split shifts at a shopping centre.
Jack & Sally: “My dearest friend, if you don’t mind. I’d like to join you by your side. Where we can gaze into the stars. And sit together, now and forever. For it is plain, as anyone can see. We’re simply meant to be.”
Clark: “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. We’re gonna press on and we’re gonna have the happ-happ-happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny-fucking-Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.”
Fred Gailey: “Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to.”

Because Christmas is the only time of year anyone can be so earnest.
Kris Kringle: “Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind.”
Frank Cross: “It’s Christmas Eve. It’s the one night a year when we all act a little nicer, we smile a little easier, we cheer up a little more.”
Santa: “Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart.”
Narrator: “It came without ribbons, it came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags. Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas (he thought) means a little bit more.”
So go hug your friends and family immediately.
Linus: “I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.”
Emma Allen: “If I wasn’t such a mean old biddy, I’d break down and cry.”
Kermit & Robin: “Another crisis solved. Yeah, there sure are a lot here. Well, all families start to come together. We always get together at Christmas. Yeah, life would just pass in a blur if it wasn’t for times like this.”
And then they sing “Jingle Bells,” which is so cute that if you don’t cry, you may be a stone-cold monster.
John McClane: “Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.”
