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
weary path may lead to peace.  --
Agnes M. Pharo
Whatever else be lost among the years,
Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing.
Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
Let us get back our childlike faith again.
-- Grace N. Crowell
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!
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions
of our childhood days, recall to us the pleasures of our youth
and transport the traveler back to his own fireside.
-- Charles Dickens
When the snow falls softly on the meadow
And the trees are trimmed in mistletoe,
I'll keep a home fire burning for you brightly,
Invite you in and keep you from the cold.
