The Ultimate Ranking of Christmas Movie Quotes

14 December 2016

It is that time of year again: eating three mince pies at 9.30am is totally acceptable, combusting into spontaneous carolling is welcomed with open smiles and festive film-watching is mandatory. Yes, that is right, the Yuletide is here, Christmas is upon us. This also means it is time for the aforementioned Christmas films. The month of December is a 31-day period of bliss, in which watching elves prance on your screen and Scrooge’s Ghosts of Christmas coming to visit becomes standard practice - despite however many times you’ve seen all those classic scenes before.

So, we scrolled through all of our old favourites and picked out the ultimate ranking of Christmas film quotes. From the ones that bring you that festive feeling to the timeless classics. We hope you enjoy our top ten list.
