"It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching out of the self to one's fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas Spirit."
"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, love divine,
Love was born at Christmas,
Stars and angels gave the sign.
"If there is no joyous way to give a festive gift, give love away."
"Peace on earth and mercy mild are still possible. On Christmas Eve, all things are possible."
"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."
Heap on the wood!
The wind is chill,
But let it whistle as it will,
We'll keep our Christmas merry still.
"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
"It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart."
May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!
"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."
