'Tis the season for tons of Christmas movies. For real, there are too many festive movies to watch this time of year, and everyone has their go-to favorites. You and your friends may even hold a debate on the best Christmas movie of all time. There are the classics like Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, and It's a Wonderful Life, and nostalgic '90s flicks like Home Alone and The Santa Clause. It's difficult to choose, but one thing that's for certain is, you can't go wrong with Christmas movie quotes for captions on Instagram.

Whether you're having a comfy movie night with your roommates in festive onesies or spending the day playing in the snow, pictures are a must. The only problem is coming up with a caption before you post. Luckily, a Christmas movie quote is always a good idea, and with so many holiday films to choose from, you'll never run out of awesome one-liners. Totally quotable films like my favorite Christmas movie, Elf, are guaranteed to bring instant likes.

There's also a quote for every occasion. You can go with something sweet from a rom-com like Love Actually for your mistletoe pics with bae, or something hilarious from How the Grinch Stole Christmas for your squad pic (aka screenshot) at your virtual Secret Santa gift exchange. So, pop that kettle corn and enjoy these 27 Christmas movie quotes just for you:
