Merry Christmas!

I’ll leave you with a few thoughts from some famous and not-so-famous people to think about this holiday season.

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 ChristmasCalvin Coolidge

Christmas gift suggestion: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, an example. To yourself, respect Oren Arnold

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas … perhaps … means a little bit more.”Dr. Seuss, from How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it ‘white’ – Bing Crosby

Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s ChristmasDale Evans

Christmas spirit is about falling in love with new ideas and new opportunities. It’s about hope for the future and helping others in the present.Jim Devitt in yet unnamed (and didn’t get published in time for the holidays) novel.
