5 Christmas Movie Scenes I Frickin’ Love

by Rebecca A. Watson on December 18, 2014

in holidays, movie clip Monday, Solstice

I’m getting ready to fly to San Francisco (yay for Mexican food and the ocean!!) and I have been working like mad, which means my hands are hurting. (Boo for carpal tunnel!!)

So since I’ve been getting pretty serious lately, writing about race relations and depression, I decided to give us all a break.

Here are some of my favorite clips from movies I love, and in many cases have watched again and again.

1. Jamie proposes to Aurelia, Love Actually — I don’t care how cheesy this scene might appear, it brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it. If you haven’t, for some insane reason not seen this movie, do it now.

2. “You like sugar, don’t you?” Elf — It’s hard to pick a favorite scene from this movie, it’s all so great. Will Ferrell at his best. But I mean, c’mon, I love sugar. And something about the burp humor brings me back to being a kid. This whole movie makes me feel that way.

3. “Fornicate?” Bad Santa — Everything about this movie is just wrong. And that’s what so great about it. Hands down one of my favorites. And I heard a rumor there’s gonna be a sequel!?! Just stop it.

4. The squirrel attack, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation — I fiiiiinally saw this movie this year and I laughed so hard at this scene. I love how Julia Louise-Dreyfus’ character just gets mangled. Ahahaha!

5. “Yippe Ki Yay …” in Die Hard — I’m a die hard Die Hard fan (haaaa!) and of course, the original is classic. One of my friends said in Germany they dubbed him saying the equivalent of “Eff you” … he was so disappointed there was no direct translation.

OK there are a lot more, but I’m stopping now. I could go on for hours really 🙂

What about you? What are some of your favs?
