"Of all the Charlie Browns in the World, You're the Charlie Browniest!"

As I have previously posted, one of our favorite holiday traditions is the 12 Days of Christmas.  Beginning the 12th day before Christmas, Nick & I watch one holiday movie per day.  (We stay home in Memphis for Christmas, so we love the relaxing slow-paced enjoyment this tradition provides.)  

The first year we were married, I had the original vision of baking a different cookie recipe every day.  Ha.  (Yes, that's just laughable.  Sorry, Martha Stewart.)  

Also, it must be noted that the first year of our tradition, we planned on many children's holiday classics.  You know the ones--"Rudolph," "Frosty," and the whole gang.  We found that it wasn't as fun without any children around!  Therefore, our movie choices typically do not include children's movies at this time.

So, I challenge you to a little holiday movie trivia.  See if you can pick which holiday movie these quotes were taken from--some are more obscure than others.  (And watch out for Julie Kiser, queen of all movie quotes!)

12. "And I was the snow...and you scooped me up with a big red shovel.  You scooped me up."

11. "Oh Jo!  Your one beauty!"

10. "I HATE Uncle Jamie!"

9. "Oh.  I'm a human, raised by humans."

8. "We never have grownups here that are girls...I really like it."

7. "Rocky bit my thumb.  Him's nervous."

6. "Look whatchya did, you little jerk..."

5. "We're Marley and Marley...oooooooo!"

4. "It came without ribbons!  It came without tags!  It came without packages, boxes, or bags!"

3. "Well then you can swallow it, and it it'll all dissolve, see?  And the moonbeams will shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair..."

2. "TENS AND TWENTIES?!  Ohhhhh...even my baby sister!"

1. "You used up all the glue on purpose!!." 

BONUS: "I LIKE the Wizard of Oz..."

PS: I added new pictures to the marathon post below--check em out!
