Christmas Corner

Christmas – that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance – a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
- Augusta E. Rundel



Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
- Larry Wilde



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



Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts.
