Christmas Corner

"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more."
- Dr. Seuss



Christmas is the keeping-place for memories of our innocence.
- Joan Mills



Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.
- George Matthew Adams



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
