Christmas Quote – A Christmas Blessing

December 25, 2008

A Christmas Blessing

During this Christmas season,
May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
which is love

Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart’s possessing
Returns to you glad.
John Greenleaf Whittier

A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
The poor man’s heart through half the year.

Childish Days

December 4, 2007

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! 

Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836

Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the  year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish.  Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself. 

 Francis C. Farley

The magic of Christmas

October 3, 2007

The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing
other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts
becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
