Mrry Christmas to all of you.
Santa is very jolly because he knows where all the bad girls live.
Next to a circus there ain’t nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit.
Let Christmas not become a thing
Merely of merchant’s trafficking,
Of tinsel, bell and holly wreath
And surface pleasure, but beneath
The childish glamour, let us find
Nourishment for soul and mind.
Let us follow kinder ways
Through our teeming human maze,
And help the age of peace to come
From a Dreamer’s martyrdom.
I love the Christmas-tide, and yet,
I notice this, each year I live;
I always like the gifts I get,
But how I love the gifts I give!
Christmas is the season when you buy this year’s gifts with next year’s money.
A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season’s here;
Then he’s thinking more of others than he’s thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.
He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;
When the Christmas spirit rules him he comes close to the sublime…
Open your presents at Christmastime but be thankful year round for the gifts you receive.
Lorinda Ruth Lowen
There is a remarkable breakdown of taste and intelligence at Christmastime. Mature, responsible grown men wear neckties made of holly leaves and drink alcoholic beverages with raw egg yolks and cottage cheese in them.
Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts.
Lenora Mattingly Weber
When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?
Only in souls the Christ is brought to birth,
And there He lives and dies.
Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.
That love weighs more than gold!
