christmas time is here!

alan and i just got finished decorating our christmas tree and listening to christmas songs in our new apartment, and i'm feeling awfully christmas-y at the moment...

christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
~norman vincent peale

he who has not christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
~roy l. smith

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 seem by one 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.
~charles dickens

the best of all gifts around any christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
~burton hillis

christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
~washington irving

for centuries men have kept an appointment with christmas. christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home.
~w.j. ronald tucker
