As we descend into the holiday season, it can be necessary every so often to put down the Christmas cookie, take a step back from aggressive holiday cheer, and have nice li'l laugh. So, for that li'l laugh, check out these funny holiday quotes. Share them at family functions at your own risk — if you get the reputation as "that cousin always trying to make goofs," that's on you, my dudes.

The holiday season, which begins after either Halloween or Thanksgiving depending on who you talk to, and runs through New Year's Eve, is a marathon of socializing, drinking, gift giving, money spending and consuming copious amounts of sugar. It's spawned endless pop culture goofs and spoofs that address everything from the bizarre gifts your great-aunt sends to the ever-awkward scenario of bringing your significant other home and having to, uh, "hang out" in your childhood twin bed.

What I'm trying to say is, pop culture gets you, and there are tons of funny quotes about the holidays that prove that. So whether you're going to 50 different cousin-hosted functions or you're going it alone this year, check out these hilarious quotes about the holiday season. Hopefully at least one will make you laugh. Got a good one of your own that's not on this list? Tell it! I wanna hear it! I need some cheering up, too!
