Christmas is sights, especially the sights of Christmas reflected in the eyes of a child.
- William Saroyan
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.
- Harlan Miller
What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
- Agnes M. Pahro
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
