Happy Holidays

How about a little silliness for a strange holiday season and the end of a struggle-filled, tough year?

Some random quotes from my family’s favorite holiday programming…

“Son of a NUTcracker!”

“I wish I had a million dollars…hot dog!”

“Why is the carpet all WET, Todd?!”
“I don’t KNOW, Margot!”

“All I want is what I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share.”

“If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”

“Did you HEAR that?!”

“That’s what Attila the Hun said. But when he saw his mothah? Niagara Falls.”

“Basements are like that.”

“You used up all the glue on purpose!”

“Maybe I’ll turn it into a sport coat.”

“Blast this Christmas music! It’s joyful AND triumphant.”


“More than ONE lobster was present at the birth of Jesus Christ?”

“What’s the matter, Othello? Jealous? Did you know that there’s a swimming pool under this floor? And did you know that button behind you causes this floor to open up? And did you FURTHER know that George Bailey is dancing right over that crack?”

“Fixed the newel post!”

“The bitch hit me with a toaster!”

“Only I didn’t say, ‘fudge.’ I said THE word. The big one. The F-dash-dash-dash word.”

“Buffalo gals, can’t ya come out tonight, aaaaaaand…dance by the light of the moon.”

“And the Grinch with his Grinch feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, ‘How could it be so?”

“You feelin’ strong, my friend? Call me ‘elf’ one more time.”

“There are people that are having trouble making their miracle happen.”

“God bless us, every one.”

(Quotes are from A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas; original animation and live action film, A Christmas Story, Elf, Scrooged, A Christmas Carol, Home Alone, Love Actually, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and It’s a Wonderful Life)

J, the Boy and I are enjoying spending a cozy Christmas at home together watching all these movies and not doing much else, but we know there are a lot of folks out there having some trouble making their miracle happen. If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you find some comfort and joy in it this year, even though it’s going to be a weird and perhaps difficult one. And whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you have enough, and if you find yourself, like J and I do, having more than enough, you help someone else make their miracle happen however you can.

Happy Holidays (all of them…not just Christmas) and I hope you find peace and goodwill.
