While Thanksgiving is this Thursday, it’s never too early to start getting into the Christmas spirit!

I’ve already been in the Christmas mood since December 26th, 2016, but that’s often considered a little excessive to most people. Most people like to use Halloween as their “Christmas spirit” mental switch, but some people wait until Thanksgiving (which is super lame– but I guess I respect it). One of my favorite things about Christmas is the Christmas movie quotes.

Regardless of when you start getting excited, it’s a magical season filled with music, holiday decorations, cheesy Hallmark movies, and amazing quotes to get you in the Christmas spirit. Go on and play the Winter Wonderland song I posted, and keep scrolling to read 20 Christmas movie quotes to give you all the warm and fuzzy Christmas feelings this holiday season.
