Christmas movie quotes

Recommended Posts

SCSanta

This is a little specific...and from a 'schmaltzy' movie that I really enjoy.

“I didn’t really want to run away. I just wanted you to find me and bring me back here and tell me things are going to be okay—like they use to be.”

Maybe this will help...another quote from the same movie...(it is also used in a different movie, so you need to put the 2 quotes together to guess the right one...

"Santa Claus, thank god he lives. And lives forever, a thousand years from now, ten times ten thousand years from now, and he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood."

The actual quote comes from that newspaper letter to the editor and 'Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus' movie is based on that, but it is also used in another movie (several times) along with the first quote I gave you.

A little girl says the first quote to her father I didn’t really want to run away. I just wanted you to find me and bring me back here and tell me things are going to be okay—like they use to be.”

Imagine hearing Sam Elliott reading these words to her..."Santa Claus, thank god he lives. And lives forever, a thousand years from now, ten times ten thousand years from now, and he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood."

have not seen this one in awhile - picked up a copy over the weekend....

"No.  This lunatic enterprise of yours is a failure.  It's time to cut your losses and return to your calling.  You graduated first in your class at medical school.  You've got the hands of a surgeon - and you want to waste them by pulling rabbits out of hats."

The Man Who Saved Christmas

had not seen it in a long while - but found a copy in the used bin at the local DVD shop.....

The Man Who Saved Christmas is a heartwarming drama based on the life of innovative inventor and toy maker A.C. Gilbert (Jason Alexander, The Grand, Seinfeld), a man with a belief that playing helps children learn, imagine, and dream. With the support of his loving wife, Mary (Kelly Rowan, The O.C.), A.C. and his brother Frank run a successful toy factory. But when WWI breaks out, A.C. is under pressure to let the U.S. Government turn the factory into a munitions plant. With some help from his son and a little holiday magic, A.C. rediscovers his holiday spirit and convinces the U.S. Congress that what America really needs is a little Christmas joy.

I'm Feeling a Little "Scrooged"!

I love how Santa calls him Lee Major's instead of the 6 Million Dollar Man-'Steve Austin'.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
