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, of course, the time to be home - in heart as well as body.
- Garry Moore
