My Favorite Christmas Quotes

“There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child."
~ Erma Bombeck

“It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching out of the self to one's fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas spirit."
~ Isabel Currier.

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?"
~ Bob Hope

"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more."
~ Dr. Seuss From 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas'.

Remember this December,
That love weighs more than gold!
~Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon 

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it came around, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys."  ~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
