Christmas Corner

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
- Norman Vincent Peale



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 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
