Christmas movie quotes

Doubling up here.

Sitting here working on the bench for the sleigh, have a Christmas movie on Netflix.  Watching a movie that I have not seen before, but I am really enjoying it. Came out in 2017.  This is now on my to-pick-up list.  A fresh presentation of the classic story.  Do you know what it is ?? . . . . .

"I know God has a plan, but that doesn't mean it's going to be easy.  And that scares me."

This movie, despite being a classic, has great sentimental meaning to me.  I see my grandfather in this character...

"I am not satisfied with the conduct of this division.  Some of you men are under the impression, having been at Anzio, entitles you to not wear neckties.  Well you're wrong.  Neckties will be worn in this area.  And look at the rest of your appearance.  You're a disgrace to the outfit.  You're soft.  You're sloppy.  You're unruly.  You're undisciplined.  And I never saw anything look so wonderful in my whole life."

Holiday Inn or White Christmas?????

I love this quote, but this one has me racking my brain!  Went through all the Netflix movies last night and hadn't found a clue.

I am no expert - I just have a skill for absorbing and retaining lots of useless trivia....

Like I said - popped this on while I was working on a project just as a background - was pleasantly surprised and ended up just sitting and watching....

Just came out last year - a retelling of the Nativity through the eyes of some of the animals - mostly the donkey that ends up carrying Mary - the story took some liberties - arguably Mary and Joseph were not yet married (they were betrothed to be married) - and the huntsman was not on prowl in Bethlehem - but I really appreciated the way they expressed Joseph and Mary's faith in God and love for each other, the appearace of the angels, and they did a great job of conveying the evil of Herod in trying to destroy the newborn King.

The movie was The Star - check it out - it is now on my favorites list - I will be picking up a copy....

another one - something a little more silly:

"You know what you guys are ?  Nothing but a bunch of sleazy con men in red suits . . . You heard me right.  Con men. Thieves.  Degenerates.  Low lifes.  Thugs.  Criminals."  

"In the North Pole them are fightin' words partner.  Put 'em up!"

"Relax Buddy.  I'm not about to hit a Santa Claus."

Another old favorite - though maybe not technically a movie (originally).  But it is out on VHS, DVD, and YouTube.  I remember this from when I was a kid.  Still play it every year...   Do you know what it is ???  :sc_blink:

No One is guessing on the one - didn't think it was that hard.

A multi-character conversation for this one.  Tell me who said which line, please.

"This fog's as thick as peanut butter."

"You mean pea soup."

"You eat what you like, and I'll eat what I like."

Here's an easy one...

"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.”

    • 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?
