Funny Christmas movie quotes include the absolute most hilarious lines from holiday comedy movies. Which quotes from funny Christmas movies? From modern Christmas movie classics like A Christmas Story and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation to the newest holiday movie releases like Arthur Christmas, these movies keep us laughing long after Santa arrives, gifts are opened and friends and family depart. Which Christmas movies have the funniest quotes? Behold, the greatest, funniest quotes from Christmas movies for young and old! Is your all-time favorite, funniest Christmas film quote not on the list? Definitely vote it up and be sure to vote for all your faves.

Whether it's Buddy the Elf (Will Ferrell, in the instant Christmas classic movie Elf), Billy Bob Thornton as the totally deranged, super-mean store Santa, Willie, in Bad Santa or Bill Murray as Frank Cross in 1988's awesome, twisted Christmas movie Scrooged, these characters gave us quotes that won't soon be forgotten. The best Christmas movie quotes stick with you long after the film's credits roll. What's the most quotable holiday movie ever? That's a tough choice, as you'll see from this list. If I had to pick just one, it would without a doubt be 1983's A Christmas Story. Bet I'm not the only one who can quote it from memory! Besides, it's on 24/7 in the weeks leading up to Santa's big arrival - it's almost impossible not to watch it at least twice annually.

So let's raise a glass of warm apple cider (or hot chocolate, or both) to the great Christmas comedy movies. Enjoy the list, and happy holidays!

    Video: YouTube

    Frank Shirley: Write a summary and have it to me by the end of the day.
    Clark Griswold: My pleasure.
    Frank Shirley: Layman's terms. None of that inside bullsh*t jargon nobody understands.
    Clark Griswold: Yes, sir... Oh, Mr. Shirley. We got your Christmas card the other day, and my family and I are very flattered that you remembered us.
    Executive: (to Mr. Shirley) Corporate cards.

    Clark: "Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head. And I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, d*ckless, hopeless, heartless, fat-a**, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey s*** he is! Hallelujah! Holy s***! Where's the Tylenol?"

    Mr. Hector: This is the Concierge, sir!
    Johnny: I knew it was you. I could smell you getting off the elevator. You was here last night too, wasn 't you?
    Mr. Hector: Yes, sir. I was.
    Johnny: You was here and you was smooching with my brother.
    Mr. Hector: You're mistaken, sir!
    Johnny: Don't give me that. You've smooched everybody. Snuffy, Al, Leo, Little Moe with the gimpy leg. Cheeks, Boney Bob, Cliff...
    Cedric & Maureen: (GASPS)
    Mr: Hector: No! It's a lie!
    Johnny: I could go on forever, baby.

    Johnny: Maybe I'm off my hinge, but I believe you. That's why I'm gonna let you go. I'm gonna give you till the count of three to get your lousy, lying, low-down, four-flushing carcass out my door. One! Two!
    Johnny: Three. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.
