The Best Christmas Movie Quotes
Crusade for Children

December means Christmas movie season, a time when it is completely acceptable to binge watch your favorite classics. Whether you’ve seen them five times or 50 times, they never seem to get old. To help the Christmas movie memory live on throughout the year, study up on a list of notable quotes and when to use them:

1. “4:00, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one; 5:30, jazzercize; 6:30, dinner with me - I can't cancel that again; 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing... I'm booked.” -How The Grinch Stole Christmas

The Grinch is basically every college student that’s sick of human interaction. If you too want to stay inside all day, whip out a detailed schedule just like this.

2. “We elves try to stick to the 4 main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup.” -Elf

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Just like Buddy the Elf, we all like a little sugar in our lives. When people try to pester you about your diet, pull out this quote and they’ll be sure to leave you alone.

3. “I TRIPLE-dog-dare you!” -A Christmas Story

Ever need to dare someone to do something? Make sure to use this line to let them know you’re serious, especially if it has something to do with sticking tongues to frozen poles.

4. “Why is the carpet all wet Todd?”

“I don’t know Margo!” -National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

If your carpet is wet, this is the perfect quote. If it isn’t, use it anyways.

5. “I've killed it. Oh! Everything I touch gets ruined.” -A Charlie Brown Christmas

Plants die all the time, and life doesn’t always go as planned. When this happens to you, there’s nothing wrong with being dramatic and quoting Charlie Brown.

6. “One thing about trains: It doesn't matter where they're goin'. What matters is deciding to get on.” -The Polar Express

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Life is about the journey, not the destination. Let this be your motto when you have a tough decision to make or you’re about to take a chance.

7. “Seeing isn’t believing. Believing is seeing” -The Santa Clause

On the surface, this seems incredibly confusing, but it fits perfectly with any situation in which you must accept the truth.

8. “Remember George, no man is a failure who has friends” -It’s a Wonderful Life

Run this through your mind when everything seems to be falling apart. Share it with your friends too!

9. “Will you please tell Santa that instead of presents this year, I just want my family back.” -Home Alone

Kevin helps us realize what the holiday season is really about when he gives this speech. Despite the Christmas chaos, family is what truly matters.

10. “Son of a nutcracker!” -Elf

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

When you’ve finally hit your breaking point but there are children in the room, use this quote. It might make you feel slightly less angry as well, because who doesn’t love Elf!

No matter what your holiday season (or life) brings, this list of Christmas quotes is sure to be useful. Pick your favorite movie, memorize some of the lines, and recite them often. You won't regret it.
