Christmas Time!

Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home.
 ~Carol Nelson

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. 
~Andy Rooney

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. ~Charles Dickens

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. 
 ~Burton Hillis

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.

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. ~Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air. 
 ~W.T. Ellis

Even as an adult I find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve. Yuletide excitement is a potent caffeine, no matter your age. 
 ~Terri Guillemets

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. 
 ~7-year-old named boy

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. 
 ~Harlan Miller

Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. 
 ~Janice Maeditere

Perhaps the best Christmas decoration is being wreathed in smiles.

As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is.

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace, 
The gladness of Christmas give you hope, 
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
