Introduction:These are some great quotes that are all talking about Christmas. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspire me. Enjoy!
"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 both 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." I really like this quote because I feel the same way.
"Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts." This quote ties in nicely with Charles Dickens' quote because it shows that being open and charitable and loving is not only something that happens at Christmas time, but it is something that people also strive for at Christmas time, which is a good thing.
"I heard the bells on Christmas Day. Their old, familiar carols play; and wild and sweet,
the words repeat, of peace on Earth, good-will to men!" Peace on Earth! That is something I can support!
"Open your presents at Christmastime but be thankful year round for the gifts you receive." Sometimes we forget about the gifts we receive daily. This quote reminds us to be grateful for our daily gifts, maybe even more than we are for our Christmas gifts.
"Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved." The holiday season does tend to make people more sentimental. But that's okay. Sometimes we need to feel that way in order to move forward in life in a positive way.
