Christmas Corner

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



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



It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
- William Turner Ellis



My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
- Bob Hope
