The Best Ever Christmas Movie Quotes to Make Your Season Jolly

The Best Ever Christmas Movie Quotes to Make Your season Jolly

I love holiday movies because they remind me to be kinder, more giving, to laugh and of what is important. These are the best ever Christmas movie quotes, in my humble opinion, for those very reasons.

When the scent of pine is in the air, or you are making your world-famous sugar cookies, pop in a holiday movie.

You probably know it by heart, and like old friends, they bring you back to what the season is all about. Here are just a few of my favorite best ever Christmas movie quotes revamped in 2019.

The images for all of these quotes are from Shutterstock. I stumbled onto the artists at Zamurovic Photography in Serbia and fell in love with the entire collection. They use miniature objects to create little stories that give them a richness illustration can’t duplicate. The charm and wit of these photographs inspired me to create a new post just so I could use them.

This year’s “Last Christmas” is already on my list of favorites.

One reason is Emilia Clark wears an elf costume most of the time and looks adorable in it. No one but the Mother of Dragons could achieve that. The second is because it is set in London in a Christmas shop owned by Michelle Yeo and filled with the kind of kitschy decorations I adore.

Even though it was made in 1947, It’s a Wonderful Life is still on everyone’s favorite Christmas movie list. James Stewart, Donna Reed, and Lionel Barrymore never disappoint, and the message is as clear as a bell.

Home Alone is another Christmas movie classic and a must-watch every Christmas. Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern steal the movie, directed by Chris Colombus. A brilliant, sweet, honest film, this story feels real from a kid’s perspective.

There as many versions of A Christmas Carol as lights on a tree. Ebeneezer Scrooge was played by Reginald Owen in 1934, Alistair Sim in 1951, George C. Scott in 2009, and Jim Carrey in 1984. But Scrooge always learns his lesson and reminds us that love makes for a happy heart.
