Christmas Corner

The earth has grown old with its burden of care, But at Christmas it always is young.
- Phillips Brooks



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 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.
- Lenora Mattingly Weber
