  2. Lauren Layne says:

    Love this. And thanks for the reminder that it’s time to catch up on the holiday classics. On a lighter note, I’m a fan of a few quotes from Elf. “The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear” always makes me smile.

    1. I love that one, too! It’s so great. “Elf” is one of my favorites, too!

  3. Mom says:

    Or there is Jimmy Stewart to Donna Reed…”You want the moon?…Hey, that’s a pretty good idea–I’ll give you the moon, Mary.” (It’s a Wonderful Life) Isn’t that how we all feel about those we love? We’d love to give them the moon and the stars too!

    1. I love that one, too, but I still cry every time Harry makes the toast.

  4. Seb says:

    How about “Yippi-ki-yay Mother*****” from the greatest Christmas movie of all time, Die Hard!!

    1. Can you believe I’m the age I am and have never seen “Die Hard”? And I LOVE Bruce Willis, too. Shame on me!

      1. Seb says:

        Indeed! I am thunderstruck!

  5. Eleanor says:
