Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

"Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won't make it 'white'." ~ Bing Crosby

"The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing each others' loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas." ~ W.C. Jones

"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." ~ Oren Arnold

"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more." ~ Dr. Seuss

"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love." ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie

"There is no name so sweet on earth, no name so sweet in heaven. The name, before His wondrous birth, to Christ the Savior given." ~ George W. Bethun

"Open your presents at Christmastime but be thankful year round for the gifts you receive." ~Lorinda Ruth Lowen

"Fail not to call to mind, in the course of the 25th of this month, that the Divinest Heart that ever walked the earth was born on that day; and then smile and enjoy yourselves for the rest of it; for mirth is also of Heaven's making." ~Leigh Hunt

"At Christmas 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..."
~Edgar Guest

"The Church does not superstitiously observe days, merely as days, but as memorials of important facts. Christmas might be kept as well upon one day of the year as another; but there should be a stated day for commemorating the birth of our Saviour, because there is danger that what may be done on any day, will be neglected. " ~Samuel Johnson

"Keep your Christmas-heart open all the year round." ~Jessica Archmint
