Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,and behold,
everything is softer and more beautiful.
~Norman Vincent Peale
Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
~Roy L. Smith
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time;
a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely,
and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave,
and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.
There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries.
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us
that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
At Christmas, all roads lead home.
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. ~Harlan Miller
This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.
Christmas is a time to open our hearts to God and his gifts. Just like the rest of the year. ~Author Unknown
Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity.
To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.
