When I confessed to a friend that I had never seen the movie White Christmas (with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen), she insisted that I make plans to see it this Christmas season. Well, it’s already one of my favorites. There are so many great White Christmas movie quotes that I’ve collected several for you here. If you’re a die-hard fan of this Christmas classic (or on your way to being one) then you’ll instantly be taken to the scene of each of these memorable lines. Feel free to share these as your Facebook or Twitter status.
If you’re like me and you’ve never seen it, you can watch White Christmas on Amazon Instant Video for less than $5. This movie has romance, comedy, music, dancing, and even drama–the whole package! Plus, it’s something that our whole family can watch together. (Although it is a little long, and your younger kids may fall asleep before the end!)
