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



Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.
- George Matthew Adams



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