B L D No. 20

In the mood for some Christmas quotes? I am.

I have always thought of Christmas time 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. ~~ Charles Dickens ~~

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~~ Burton Hillis ~~

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

Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you….to remember the weakness and loneliness of people who are growing old…Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world…stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death…Then you can keep Christmas! But you can never keep it alone. ~~ Henry van Dyke ~~

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

Christmas really is about Jesus Christ, the son of God. I think that is what we really have to be thankful for.
Have a good day Renee.

I love the Burton Hillis quote - so true! OMG Rudolph wasn't really kidnapped was he - that poor raindeer has been through enough, what with the abominable snowman scare, being left out, etc. You know we both have had a thing for him!
