I hear that Dec. 25 is Christmas, so I’m departing from my every-five-days schedule to post a day early. For this post, I thought I’d make a little game out of several of my favorite Christmas lines from song and film. It’s simple enough: below are the lines; you name the song or film from whence they came. If you’ve been good, attentive little girls and boys, you should get all of them right; otherwise, I’ll tell Santa you’ve been naughty. However, if you’re a big, grown-up girl, I’ll let him know — ere he shows up down your chimney tonight bearing gifts — that you plan to behave yourself (unless you have other ideas).
1. He’s making a list. Checking it twice. Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.
2. Christmas Eve’ll find me where the love light gleams. [SONG TITLE] if only in my dreams.
3. SCROOGE: “Let us deal with the eviction notices for tomorrow, Mr. Cratchit.”
KERMIT: “Uh, tomorrow’s Christmas, Sir.”
SCROOGE: “Very well. You may gift wrap them.”
4. You can’t fool me – there ain’t no Sanity Clause.
5. Although it’s been said, many times, many ways….Merry Christmas to you.
Now for the answers:
1. SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN (song)
2. I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS (song)
3. THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL (film)
Chico Marx to Groucho in A NIGHT AT THE OPERA
5. THE CHRISTMAS SONG
You say you answered them all correctly, and you want to know what you get? BAH HUMBUG, that’s what! Nonetheless….
