Heap on the wood! - the wind is chill; But let it whistle as it will, We'll keep our Christmas merry still.
---Sir Walter Scott
Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind; Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
---Helen Steiner Rice
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 Christmas.
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away; While quite unselfish, it grows small.
---Eva K. Logue
Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
