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. ~Charles Dickens
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas. ~Peg Bracken
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
Nothing's as mean as giving a little child something useful for Christmas.
May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,The gladness of Christmas give you hope,The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
~Mary Ellen Chase
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
