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.
- Gladys Tabor



Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
- Eric Sevareid



Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.

Christmas is the day that holds all time together.
