“I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays — let them overtake me unexpectedly — waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: ‘Why, this is Christmas Day!’” ~ David Grayson (journalist and biographer)
“As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is.”~Eric Sevareid (longtime CBS News reporter, novelist and essayist)
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ~Laura Ingalls Wilder (written when she was a magazine editor in Kansas before her Little House days)
And a few words from me: May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through.
