Christmas Corner

The Christmas spirit - love - changes hearts and lives.
- Pat Boone



Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
- Charles Dickens



To celebrate the heart of Christmas is to forget ourselves in the service of others.
- Henry C. Link



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