To the American People: Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world.
Norman Vincent Peale
I truly believe that if we keep telling the Christmas story, singing the Christmas songs, and living the Christmas spirit, we can bring joy and happiness and peace to this world.
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.
Remember, if Christmas isn't found in your heart, you won't find it under a tree.
Pope John XXIII
Mankind is a great, an immense family. This is proved by what we feel in our hearts at Christmas.
The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has no Christmas in his heart.
Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
Guy Wetmore Carryl
O Christmas Sun! What holy task is thine! To fold a world in the embrace of God!
Christmas renews our youth by stirring our wonder. The capacity for wonder has been called our most pregnant human faculty, for in it are born our art, our science, our religion.
George W. Bethune
There is no name so sweet on earth, no name so sweet in Heaven,
The name, before His wondrous birth, to Christ the Savior given.
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
