And there are plenty of seasonal movies that recreate that atmosphere. It's a scene that may best be described by the funny Christmas movie quotes you know and love.

It's almost like the directors of your favorite holiday films — like Elf and How the Grinch Stole Christmaswere actually in your home when they came up with the hilarious scripts. It may feel like they took notes on how your younger cousins suggest making sugary spaghetti for dinner, or how you hang out with your dog in your room when your aunts are asking you questions like, "What do you want to be when you grow up?," or "Are you dating anyone right now?"
