I’m not a religious person myself, but I still appreciate the opportunity that Christmas presents (badumpcha!). I appreciate the fundamental messages of kindness and of love for one another that crop up again and again in the ads, on the tv and in the films.

So to celebrate the season of giving, here are my top 3 favourite Christmas quotes to get you feeling warm and gooey inside!

“You know I- I’m a symbol. I’m a symbol of the human ability to suppress the selfish and hateful tendencies that rule the major part of our lives.”

~ Kris Kringle, Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

“It’s Christmas Eve. It’s the one night when we all act a little nicer. We smile a little easier. We share a little more. For a couple of hours we are the people we always hoped we would be. It’s really a miracle because it happens every Christmas Eve. And if you waste that miracle, you’re gonna burn for it. I know. You have to do something. You have to take a chance and get involved…

You won’t say, “Christmas is once a year and it’s a fraud.” It’s not! It can happen every day! You’ve just got to want that feeling! You’ll want it every day! It can happen to you! I believe in it now. I believe it’s gunna happen to me, now. I’m ready for it! And it’s great. It’s a good feeling. It’s better than I’ve felt in a long time. I’m ready.

Have a Merry Christmas, everybody.”

~Frank Cross, Scrooged (1988)

And of course, a good, simple…
