It's Wordy Wednesday!

It's time for some more quotes and sayings folks.
It’s getting closer and closer so I thought it was time to look at some quotations and sayings about the festive season – Christmas here we come!

There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries. ~W.J. Cameron

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 besides ourselves. ~Eric Sevareid

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through! ~Author Unknown

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~Charles Dickens

At Christmas, all roads lead home. ~Marjorie Holmes

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love! ~Hamilton Wright Mabie

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976

Christmas is the day that holds all time together. ~Alexander Smith

Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. ~Janice Maeditere

As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is. ~Eric Sevareid

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
~Author Unknown

It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas when its mighty Founder was a child Himself. ~Charles Dickens

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, - not even a mouse:
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there....
~Clement Clarke Moore

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
~Christina Rossetti
