I wish you a merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year;
A pocket full of money
And a cellar full of beer,
And a great fat pig
To last you all the year.
(Old English Song)
At Christmas I no more desire a rose
Than wish a snow in May's newfangled mirth;
But like of each thing that in seasons grows.
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more."
(Theodor Seuss Geisel, "The Grinch")
The best Christmas trees come very close to exceeding nature.
Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

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.
Which Christmas is the most vivid to me? It's always the next Christmas.
When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness.
The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.
(Louisa May Alcott)
Something about an old-fashioned Christmas is hard to forget.
Christmas is more than a time of festivities, family and friends;
it is a season of generosity, gladness and gratitude.
(William Arthur Ward)
There was the little boy who approached Santa in a department store with a long list of requests. He wanted a bicycle and a sled, a chemical set, a cowboy suit, a set of trains, a baseball glove and roller skates.
"That's a pretty long list," Santa said sternly. "I'll have to check in my book and see if you were a good boy."
"No, no," the youngster said quickly. "Never Mind checking. I'll just take the roller skates."
Let the children have their night of fun and laughter, let the gifts of Father Christmas delight their play. Let us grown-ups share to the full in their unstinted pleasures.
(Sir Winston Churchill)
Christmas isn't a season. It's a feeling.
