I hope my Christmas music post got you at least a LITTLE excited for the holiday season.
Today we're going to laugh a little. I love to laugh. I always laugh the very hardest when I'm surrounded by family, and we inevitably either start talking about past funny adventures, or favorite funny movie quotes. We're a movie-quoting family. And since you already know we're Christmas nuts, you can guess that lots of our favorite quotes come from Christmas movies.
Hands down, our favorite Christmas movie was none other than:
A Christmas Story
Just a few of the gems from this classic flick:
"Fra -GEEE -LAY. Must be Italian"
"It's a major award!"
"He looks like a deranged Easter bunny."
"I can't put my ARMS down!"
"Show me how the piggies eat."
"It was...SOAP POISONING!"
"Fa ra ra ra ra"
And of course, "You'll shoot your eye out!"
My kids are still a little small for the humor in A Christmas Story, though, so that's one I save to laugh my butt off with my siblings and fam. With my own little fam, our favorite is:
"Buddy the elf, What's your favorite color?"
"Did you HEAR that?" ((yes, burp jokes are even popular amongst a house full of girls))
"He's an angry elf."
"Watch out! The yellow ones don't stop!"
"Have you seen these toilets?! They're ginormous!"
"My finger has a heartbeat."
Also a big hit with my girls is:
The Santa Clause
"Does this look like a little weight to you?"
"Thanks, but I'm seeing someone in wrapping."
And a couple I have to watch every season at least once, but my kids don't really love:
(They're a little afraid of the Grinch.)
Then there are a few that we might not watch every year faithfully, but some other families definitely do, so they deserve a mention:
Deck the Halls
Miracle on 34th Street
The Polar Express
Jingle All the Way
Christmas with the Cranks
And the many other Christmas Carol versions including Mickey's!
And, of course, our non-traditional family favorites. I love this one and watch it every year:
While you Were Sleeping
And while I no longer watch this one, I have to put this up for my dad. It's his "Christmas" favorite...
Did I miss any? What's your family's favorite?
Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka!
"God bless us, everyone!"
