Christmas Corner

Christmas is a bridge. We need bridges as the river of time flows past. Today's Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday.

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



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



Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts.
