Christmas Corner

Christmas – that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance – a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
- Augusta E. Rundel



One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly.
- Andy Rooney



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 not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
