Christmas I no more desire a rose, Than wish a snow in
May’s new-fangled shows; But like of each thing that in
season grows – by William Shakespeare.
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.
by Oren Arnold
will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the
year – by Charles Dickens.
- Let the children have their night
of fun and laughter, let the gifts of Father Christmas
delight their play. Let us grown-ups share to the full in
their unstinted pleasures.... by Sir
we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the
snow in Alaska won't make it "white".
by Bing Crosby
- Love came down at Christmas; Love
all lovely, love divine; Love was born at Christmas, Stars &
angels gave the sign – by Christina Rossetti.
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!
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
first copies of Treasure Island and Huckleberry Finn still
have some blue-spruce needles scattered in the pages. They
smell of Christmas still. by Charlton Heston
The Church does not superstitiously
observe days, merely as days, but as memorials of important
facts. Johnson 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.
by Samuel Johnson
Christmas is not as much about
opening our presents as opening our hearts – Janice
Keep your Christmas-heart open all
the year round – Jessica Archmint.
Remember this December, that love
weighs more than gold! – Josephine
very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear.
War is over, if you want it
War is over now.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono in "Happy Xmas (War is over)"
