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
"Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold, clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherdsand wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love." ~ Lucinda Franks
"Christmas is Love come down to earth, a gift of infinite worth." ~ Life Research Universal
Complete Christmas Story
"Commercialization has obscured the meaning of Christmas.
The commercial has become more important than the carol.
What man has to sell more important than what God has given."
"Christmas is less than what it can be - and less than what it was intended to be
where gifts are given grudgingly, and where gifts are received without appreciation."
"Christ was born in the first century, yet he belongs to all centuries. He was born a Jew, yet He belongs to all races. He was born in Bethlehem, yet He belongs to all countries." ~George W. Truett
"Christmas is based on an exchange of gifts: the gift of God to man - his unspeakable gift of his son Jesus; and the gift of man to God - when we present our bodies as a living sacrifice and, like the Macedonians (2 Corinthians 8:5), first give ourselves to God. No one has kept or can keep Christmas until he has had a part in this two-way transaction." ~Vance Havner
"Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man."~Anonymous
“Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy.
We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience.”

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
~ Norman Vincent Peale
"Christmas is not in tinsel and lights and outward show. The secret lies in an inner glow. It's lighting a fire inside the heart. Good will and joy a vital part. It's higher thought and a greater plan. It's glorious dream in the soul of man." ~Wilfred A. Peterson (The Art of Living)
"Christmas ... is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart..."

Christmas Day is a day of joy and charity. May God make you very rich in both. ~Phillips Brooks
Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever. ~ Bess Streeter Aldrich
Christmas is the season when you buy this year's gifts with next year's money. ~Author Unknown
Except the Christ be born again tonight
In dreams of all men, saints and sons of shame,
The world will never see his kingdom bright.
Fail not to call to mind, in the course of the twenty-fifth of this month, that the Divinest Heart that ever walked the earth was born on that day; and then smile and enjoy yourselves for the rest of it; for mirth is also of Heaven's making. ~Leigh Hunt
For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home. ~W.J. Ronald Tucker
From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it. ~Katharine Whitehorn
For the spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest hunger of mankind. ~Loring A. Schuler
