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.
What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
Agnes M. Pharo
There's more, much more, to Christmas Than candlelight and cheer; It's the spirit of sweet friendship That brightens all year. It's thoughtfulness and kindness, It's hope reborn again, For peace, for understanding, And for goodwill to men!

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another. The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
Norman Vincent Peale
Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles.
He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree.
Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind; Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
Helen Steiner Rice
If there is no joyous way to give a festive gift, give love away.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Hamilton Wright Mabi
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
Heap on the wood!-the wind is chill; But let it whistle as it will, We'll keep our Christmas merry still.
Sir Walter Scott
