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.

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



Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy. We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience.
- Handel H. Brown



Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
