Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind. - Mary Ellen Chase   

Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart. - George Mathew Adams  


It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, "God Bless Us, Every One ! - Charles Dickens

Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles.  - Unknown 

They err who thinks Santa Claus comes down through the chimney; he really enters through the heart. - Paul M. Ell

Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows.- Edwin Osgood Grover


Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no persuasion move thee, to do anything which thou knowest to be evil; so shalt thou always live jollity; for a good conscience is a continual Christmas. - Benjamin Franklin

If there is no joyous way to give a festive gift, give love away. - Unknown 
From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another. The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other. - Emily Matthews  

Heap on the wood !-the wind is chill; But let it whistle as it will, We'll keep our Christmas merry still. - Sir Walter Scott 


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 candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away; While quite unselfish, it grows small. - Eva K. Logue

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. - Oren Arnold


Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.- Washington Irving

He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree. - Sunshine Magazine 

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. - Calvin Coolidge  

A good many things go around in the dark besides Santa Claus. - Herbert Hoover

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. - Charles Dickens
