Christmas Corner

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
- Norman Vincent Peale



Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
- Hamilton Wright Mabi



Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.
- Dale Evans



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
