Advent18Here’s a small collection of Christmas quotes.

“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus.”

Francis Pharcellus ChurchThe New York Sun Editorial

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable 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 DickensA Christmas Carol

“The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has not Christmas in his heart.”

Helen Keller

“Mistletoe,” said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed almost over Harry’s head. He jumped out from under it.
“Good thinking,” said Luna seriously. “It’s often infested with nargles.”

J.K. RowlingHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

Dr. SeussHow the Grinch Stole Christmas!

“Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection.”

Winston Churchill
