    Here are some famous quotes that I like.

    Carrie Fisher

    "I don't think Christmas is necessarily about things. It's about being good to one another, it's about the Christian ethic, it's about kindness."

    Winston Churchill
    "Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection."

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

    “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
    Bob Hope

    “Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ”
    Norman Vincent Peale

    “In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!”
    Dave Barry


    “And in despair I bowed my head;
    "There is no peace on earth," I said;
    "For hate is strong,
    And mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

    Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
    "God is not dead, nor doth he sleep!
    The Wrong shall fail,
    the Right prevail,
    With peace on earth, good-will to men!”
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Also came across this Christmas poem ....

    My Christmas Wish To You
    by Catherine Pulsifer

    If I could wish a wish for you,
    it would be for peace, faith, and happiness
    not only at Christmas,
    but for the whole year through!

    I wish that there always be food on your table.
    That you always give to those less fortunate.
    May you always take time to share,
    and thank those who have blessed you.

    I wish for time, so you may reflect
    on the blessings that you have,
    and that you express your love
    to those who are dear to you.

    May you never feel lonely,
    because there are those who care.
    That you realize: you are special,
    you are unique, you make a difference,
    not only at Christmas, but all year!

    I wish for your thoughts to be positive ones,
    that you never quit, that you never give up,
    and that you continue to learn.

    I wish for the love, and peace of God,
    to be yours always.
