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.

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



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 the happiness that lights our children's eyes.
Christmas is a song of bells ringing through the skies.
Christmas is a time of peace, of contentment deep within,
A time of love and silent hope that years will never dim.
- Sherrill Thompson
