Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale
At Christmas, all roads lead home. ~Marjorie Holmes
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. ~Harlan Miller
For the spirit of Christmas fulfills the greatest hunger of mankind. ~Loring A. Schuler
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.
|You can see the 1950s Christmas tree with its colored lights through the family room window.|
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
Christmas — that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. 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
“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs. No one seemed to be in a rush to experience anything other than the glory of the day, with each other, whenever and however it happened.”
― Rachel Cohn
