Christmas Corner

The Christmas spirit - love - changes hearts and lives.
- Pat Boone



I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.
- Harlan Miller



It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
- William Turner Ellis



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.
