Christmas words of wisdom

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. --Norman Vincent Peale

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church, the Jews called it "Hanukkah" and went to synagogue, the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukkah" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall!" --Dave Barry

Christmas is a time to open our hearts to God and His gifts. Just like the rest of the year. --Unknown

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. --Roy L. Smith

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

The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn't for any religious reasons. They couldn't find three wise men and a virgin. --Jay Leno

For the spirit of Christmas fulfills the greatest hunger of mankind. --Loring A. Schuler

Christmas, my child, is love in action. --Dale Evans

On 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 a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves. --Eric Sevareid

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

Wouldn't life be worth the living
Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?
