Christmas Corner

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
- William John Cameron



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



Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.
- George Matthew Adams



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.
