|Mankind is a great, an immense family...|
This is provided by what we feel in our hearts at Christmas!
|Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold,|
everything is softer and more beautiful.
|There is no ideal Christmas;|
Only the Christmas you decide to make as a reflection of your
values, desires, affections, traditions.
|Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.|
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
|I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.|
|The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each other's burdens,|
easing other's loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives
with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
|Don't let the past steal your present.|
This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.
|Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day|
of the year to remind us that we're here for something else
|Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings,|
all the snow in Alaska won't make it 'white'.
|Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories & love of kindred,|
and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit,
become a child again at Christmas-time.
|Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas!|
|Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind;|
teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
|Christmas makes me happy no matter|
what time of year it comes around.
