11 Christmas Movie Quotes That Can Be Used All Year

The holiday season can be one full of magic, whimsy, and wonder. And there's no reason you can't keep the spirit going beyond December 25. Thanks to the beauty of hollywood, there's an array of Christmas movie quotes that you can use all year round — from December 26 to June 26. Whether it's something sentimental from Miracle on 34th Street or a humorous line from Elf , Christmas movies can provide people with the tools needed to have holly, jolly feelings no matter the season.  

This is especially helpful in the winter months, when many can feel less than merry. Some people experience what’s called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) —  which can affect up to 20 percent of the US population — where the lack of sunshine and warm temperatures can lead to a serious case of the winter blues. One way to fight off SAD is to take some “me time” and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate while watching your favorite Christmas movie. Whether you love the classics like It’s A Wonderful Life and White Christmas or you enjoy fun, light-hearted films like Elf and Home Alone, here are some amazing quotes you can take from holiday movies to keep you feeling cheery and warm all year long.
