Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
Norman Vincent Peale
Sir Walter Scott
‘Twas Christmas broach’d the mightiest ale;
‘Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;
A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
The poor man’s heart through half the year.
Christmas is the day that holds all time together.
Helen Steiner Rice
Bless us Lord, this Christmas with quietness of mind. Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
Hamilton Wright Mabi
Blessed is the season, which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Clement C. Moore, The Night Before Christmas
Now, ‘Dasher!’ now, ‘Dancer!’ now, ‘Prancer’ and ‘Vixen!’
On, ‘Comet!’ on, ‘Cupid!’ on, ‘Donner’ and ‘Blitzen!’
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
Please to put a penny in an old man’s hat;
If you haven’t got a penny a ha’penny will do,
If you haven’t got a ha’penny, God bless you.
Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart… filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever.
Ray Evans, Silver Bells
Silver bells, silver bells,
It’s Christmas time in the city.
Now I’m an old Christmas tree, the roots of which have died. They just come along and while the little needles fall off me replace them with medallions.
W. T. Ellis
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam
The time draws near the birth of Christ;
The moon is hid; the night is still;
The Christmas bells from hill to hill
Answer each other in the mist.
Ada V. Hendricks
May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
