Christmas Corner

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
- William John Cameron



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 most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.
- Ruth Carter Stapleton



Christmas is the day that holds all time together.
- Alexander Smith
