Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything
is softer and more beautiful.
Norman Vincent Peale
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy
Hamilton Wright Mabi
Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that
something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may
weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting,
or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a
day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
Augusta E. Rundel
Remember, this December, that love weighs more than gold.
Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon
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.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly
as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that
they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy.
Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus!
It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would
be no child-like faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable
this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense
and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the
world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in
Francis P. Church
From the New York Sun, September 21, 1897.
If there is no joyous way to give a festive gift, give love
Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart,
a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of
the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history,
because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing
medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts
for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging
bundles is this beating Christmas heart.
George Mathhew Adams
From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another.
The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other.
Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing,
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing,
Returns to you glad.
John Greenleaf Whittier
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
W. T. Ellis
The merry family gatherings -
The old, the very young;
The strangely lovely way they
Harmonize in carols sung.
For Christmas is tradition time -
Traditions that recall
The precious memories down the years,
The sameness of them all.
Helen Lowrie Marshall
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence
of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
Love came down at Christ
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Stars and angels gave the sign.
Christmas ... is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of
one's home that one carries in one's heart.
I heard the bells on Christmas Day.
Their old familiar carols play.
And wild and sweet the words repeat.
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Christmas is a time when people of all religions come together
to worship Jesus Christ.
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 is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality
in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
Christmas reminds us we are not alone. We are not unrelated
atoms, bouncing and ricocheting amid aliens, but are a part
of something, which holds and sustains us. As we struggle with
shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad
weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in
our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom
we are worth the same. Christmas shows us the ties that bind
us together, threads of love and caring, woven in the simplest
and strongest way within the family.
Donald E. Westlake
Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents.
Louisa May Alcott
Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
Mary Ellen Chase
Do they still make wooden Christmas Trees?
Linus Van Pelt in Peanuts.
Forget about the crackers,
And forget about the candy;
I'm sure a box of chocolates
Would never come in handy;
I don't like oranges,
I don't want nuts,
And I HAVE got a pocket-knife
That almost cuts.
But, oh! Father Christmas, if you love me at all,
Bring me a big, red India-rubber ball!
A. A. Milne
King John's Christmas.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under
Roy L. Smith
Heap on the wood! - the wind is chill;
But let it whistle as it will,
We'll keep our Christmas merry still.
Sir Walter Scott
And is it true? and is it true?
This most tremendous tale of all,
Seen in a stained-glass window's hue,
A Baby in an ox's stall?
The Maker of the stars and sea
Become a Child on earth for me?
And is it true? For if it is,
No loving fingers tying strings
Around those tissued fripperies,
The sweet and silly Christmas things,
Bath salts and inexpensive scent
And hideous tie so kindly meant.
No love that in a family dwells,
No carolling in frosty air,
Nor all the steeple-shaking bells
Can with this single Truth compare -
That God was man in Palestine
And lives today in Bread and Wine.
And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
Bob Geldof and Midge Ure
Do They Know It's Christmas?
And So This Is Christmas;
And What Have We Done?
Another Year Over; A New One Just Begun;
And So Happy Christmas;
I Hope You Have Fun;
The Near And The Dear Ones;
The Old And The Young.
Happy Christmas (War is Over).
At Christmas play, and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year.
The Farmer's Daily Diet, 1557.
