Christmas Corner

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
- William John Cameron



Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
- Norman Wesley Brooks



Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.
- Dale Evans



Christmas is the time to let your heart do the thinking.
- Patricia Clafford
