Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
Norman Vincent Peale
Sing hey! Sing hey!
For Christmas Day;
Twine mistletoe and holly.
For a friendship glows
In winter snows,
And so let’s all be jolly!
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith
What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
Agnes M. Pahro
Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year – and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.
I 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.
For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home.
W.J. Ronald Tucker
May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
There has been only one Christmas – the rest are anniversaries.
‘Twas Christmas broach’d the mightiest ale;
‘Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;
A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
The poor man’s heart through half the year.
Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
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
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
At Christmas, all roads lead home.
Mankind is a great, an immense family. This is proved by what we feel in our hearts at Christmas.
Pope John XXIII
One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.
Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!
This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.
May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
Ada V. Hendricks
As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is.
When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things – not the great occasions – give off the greatest glow of happiness.
Keep your Christmas-heart open all the year round.
Wouldn’t life be worth the living
Wouldn’t dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?
Christmas is a time to open our hearts to God and his gifts. Just like the rest of the year.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!
Hamilton Wright Mabie
I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays – let them overtake me unexpectedly – waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: “Why, this is Christmas Day!”
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.
Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends.
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
That love weighs more than gold!
Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon
Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
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…
Christmas is the season when you buy this year’s gifts with next year’s money.
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
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
Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles.
Christmas is the day that holds all time together.
Only in souls the Christ is brought to birth,
And there He lives and dies.
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.
Tradition: sit with husband in a room lit only by tree lights and remember that our blessings outnumber the lights. Happy Christmas to all.
Betsy Cañas Garmon
At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year
Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
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
The perfect Christmas tree? All Christmas trees are perfect!
Charles N. Barnard
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself…
Norman Wesley Brooks
Be merry all, be merry all,
With holly dress the festive hall;
Prepare the song, the feast, the ball,
To welcome merry Christmas.
William Robert Spencer
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.
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
The message of Christmas is that the visible material world is bound to the invisible spiritual world.
Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given – when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.
Joan Winmill Brown
Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and dance – each beautiful, unique and too soon gone.
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that – as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time.
The best Christmas trees come very close to exceeding nature.
I love the Christmas-tide, and yet,
I notice this, each year I live;
I always like the gifts I get,
But how I love the gifts I give!
At Christmas-tide the open hand
Scatters its bounty o’er sea and land,
And none are left to grieve alone,
For Love is heaven and claims its own.
Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
Let Christmas not become a thing
Merely of merchant’s trafficking,
Of tinsel, bell and holly wreath
And surface pleasure, but beneath
The childish glamour, let us find
Nourishment for soul and mind.
Let us follow kinder ways
Through our teeming human maze,
And help the age of peace to come
From a Dreamer’s martyrdom.
The earth has grown old with its burden of care,
But at Christmas it always is young….
Nothing’s as mean as giving a little child something useful for Christmas.
It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.
Three phrases that sum up Christmas are: Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men, and Batteries not Included.
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know,
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow…
I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included.
Whatever else be lost among the years,
Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing;
Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
Let us get back our childlike faith again.
Grace Noll Crowell
Even as an adult I find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve. Yuletide excitement is a potent caffeine, no matter your age.
Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart… filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.
Bess Streeter Aldrich
O Christmas Sun! What holy task is thine!
To fold a world in the embrace of God!
Guy Wetmore Carryl
‘Tis blessed to bestow, and yet,
Could we bestow the gifts we get,
And keep the ones we give away,
How happy were our Christmas day!
Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. Calvin Coolidge, 1927
Oh! lovely voices of the sky
Which hymned the Saviour’s birth,
Are ye not singing still on high,
Ye that sang, “Peace on earth”?
