Christmas Quotes

Well, as Christmas season is winding up (or down, however you want to look at it), thought I'd provide some of my favorite quotes from the various Christmas movies and TV shows I like. Hope these are some of your favorites, too.
  • I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle! Ralph Parker, A Christmas Story
  • You'll shoot your eye out - Various characters, A Christmas Story
  • My father wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan - Ralph Parker
  • Only I didn't say fudge... - Ralph Parker
  • FRA-GEE-LAY. Must be Italian - Mr. Parker, A Christmas Story
  • Think that says FRAGILE, dear - Mrs. Parker
  • It's just like Santa's workshop! Only it smells like mushrooms...and everyone looks like they want to hurt me - Buddy, Elf
  • You smell like beef and cheese! You don't smell like Santa! - Buddy
  • If you see a sign that says "Peep Show," that doesn't mean that they're letting you look at the new toys before Christmas - Santa, Elf
  • You couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitroglycerin plant! - Uncle Lewis, Christmas Vacation
  • That there's an RV...don't you go falling in love with it now because we're taking it with us when we leave next month - Eddie, Christmas Vacation
  • Can I refill your eggnog? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead? - Clark Griswald, Christmas Vacation
  • Is there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?! - Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas
  • And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all the people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.' - Linus Van Pelt, A Charlie Brown Christmas (Luke 2:8-14)
  • That's what Christmas is all about - Linus Van Pelt

Yes, indeed, Linus. That IS what Christmas is truly all about.

Not sure if I will post again before Christmas. Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. Please don't let the craziness of the season get in the way of remembering the Reason for the Season, whether you are celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah.

As always, thanks for reading, and may the Lord bless you and your family!
