“Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!”

Una here and for a special Christmas Day edition of Sunday Snippets, I’ve gathered some fun Christmas quotes.  Please feel free to join in the celebration with your favorite holiday quotes whether from written word, songs or movies.  Let’s celebrate the joy and love of the season.  From all of us here at That’s What I’m Talking About, we wish you a very wonderful holiday season full of friends, family, love, laughter and joy!


“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!


“Look, Daddy. Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.”
— Zuzu Bailey (Karolyn Grimes) from It’s A Wonderful Life.


“One can never have enough socks,” said Dumbledore. “Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone


“Rats. Nobody sent me a Christmas card today. I almost wish there weren’t a holiday season. I know nobody likes me. Why do we have to have a holiday season to emphasize it?”
— Charlie Brown from It’s A Charlie Brown Christmas.


“I need a weapon,” Valkyrie muttered.

“You’re an Elemental with a Necromancer ring, trained in
a variety of martial arts by some of the best fighters in the world,” Skulduggery pointed out. “I’m fairly certain that makes you a weapon.”

“I mean a weapon you hold. You have a gun, Tanith has a sword… I want a stick.”

“I’ll buy you a stick for Christmas.”
Derek Landy, Mortal Coil


Ralphie (Peter Billingsley): “No! No! I want an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!”

Santa Claus: “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.”
— From A Christmas Story


“There are many things from which I might have derived good, by which I have not profited, I dare say,’ returned the nephew. ‘Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round—apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that—as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!”
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol


”Oh, Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind and that’s what’s been changing. That’s why I’m glad I’m here, maybe I can do something about it.”
— Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) from Miracle on 34th Street.


“The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood”
Richard Paul Evans, The Christmas Box


“It’s Christmas Eve. It’s the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we smile a little easier, we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year we are the people that we always hoped we would be.”
— Frank Cross (Bill Murray) from Scrooged.


“It was the beginning of the greatest Christmas ever. Little food. No presents. But there was a snowman in their basement.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief


“And may all your Christmases be white. Merry Christmas!”
— Bob (Danny Kaye), Phil (Bing Crosby), Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy (Vera-Ellen) from White Christmas.


“At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.”
Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express


“That’s what Christmas memories are made from, they’re not planned, they’re not scheduled, nobody puts them in their Blackberry, they just happen.”
— Kelly Finch (Kristin Davis) from Deck the Halls.
