Christmas Corner

Christmas is sights, especially the sights of Christmas reflected in the eyes of a child.
- William Saroyan



Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
- Charles Dickens



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



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