“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred,
and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder
“Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.”
― Charles M. Schulz
“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
― Garrison Keillor
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
but because of all the decorations and lights and the warmth of the season.
