Christmas Corner

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.

Remember: this December, that love weighs more than gold!
- Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon



Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.
- Charles Schulz



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
