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.

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.

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