The earth has grown old with its burden of care,

Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
- Eric Sevareid
Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.
- Dale Evans
