Christmas Corner

The earth has grown old with its burden of care, But at Christmas it always is young.
- Phillips Brooks



I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.
- Harlan Miller



What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
- Agnes M. Pahro



Christmas is, of course, the time to be home - in heart as well as body.
