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.

Dross, you are the Resident Clausnet Christmas Movie Expert!

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.”

    • 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.

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      ChristmasWeekly.com
      September 7, 2017

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
