26 Funny Christmas Movie Quotes That Describe Being Home For The Holidays

Being home for the holidays is an adventure in itself. You might wake up on Christmas morning to your younger siblings leaping onto your bed, telling you it's time to open presents, or your mom whipping up bacon and eggs and simultaneously welcoming guests into your home. It's a scene that may best be described by the funny Christmas movie quotes you know and love.

It's as if the directors of your favorite holiday films — like Elf and How the Grinch Stole Christmas — were 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?"

In those moments, you probably want to respond with one of the iconic lines from The Holiday or Frozen, but you may not be sure if your family members would understand the reference. Don't fret or get your tinsel in a tangle. There are a bunch of holiday movie fans who are catching your snow drift, and get a total kick out of how accurate, funny, and relatable these 26 Christmas movie quotes are, too.
