So, I know Christmas is a long time away (and honestly I can wait, lol) but polls need to be carefully and lovingly developed, and that takes time.  My poll is about responses from movies and T.V. about what the characters want for Christmas. 

Here's the list for now https://www.imdb.com/list/ls049272296/

I've submitted an image of Sally Brown for her famous response.  :)  So please suggest quotes from anything on T.V. or films where people say what they want this holiday!  If there's not an image for it, it can be added.  Thank you!

I found a few by searching that you may be able to use:

"I want to be your girl, that's what I want for Christmas."
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039545/...

"I don't need anything more for Christmas than this right here: my family."
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0170016/...

"I am not sure what I want for Christmas this year. Sometimes it is very hard to decide. Perhaps you should send me your catalog."

This is a poll suggestion, but it had not been marked such.

Well, I guess I didn't see it as a poll suggestion because I'm not suggesting that the list go live.  I just need help getting options to put on the list.  Then down the line it will be ready.

Nia and Jeorj,

I updated the title of the title of this thread to match the title of the thread. I also included "Poll Suggestion:".


Ironically, when I saw the title of the thread, I planned to suggest that you change the title to:
All I Want For Christmas...

... you already had that as the title.

Jeorj,

Your comment was apropos. Nia had "All I Want for Christmas" as the title of the list. I updated the title of this thread to match.

It should actually be "for" in lowercase, no?

This poll suggestions seems like it is going to end up with a lot Hallmark entries. I always liked Sally Ryan's request in The Hunt for Red October (1990). She declared to her parents life would be a loot less lonely if her parents would buy her a baby brother."Her parents reasoned with her  and got her to settle for her father bringing home a 'brother' for her teddy bear Stanley. I am not sure it was in the context of a Christmas request, but it seems the initial request if filled would be a Christmas-level type request.


A similarly grand request came from Natalie Wood's Susan Walker of Edmund Gwenn's Kris Kringle in  Miracle on 34th Street (1947) when ask for a Cape Cod style house on Long Island with  aswing in the back.

I couldn't find a clip or a listing on wikiquote. As I recall she asks for a house and shows him a picture in a magazine, as proof he is Santa Claus, when Kris is putting her to bed in the original movie.



She is more specific once she gets the gift on Christmas, as seen in this clip.
