As I spent some time this morning searching for Christmas quotes, I came across a huge variety of perspective and insight...Here are some I thought I'd share...Some funny, some insightful, some painfully honest, but all worth reading and pondering...
Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space.
- Dave Barry
Christmas is the day that holds all time together. - Alexander Smith
Christmas is the one time of year when people of all religions come together to worship Jesus Christ. - Bart Simpson
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.
"He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree." - Roy L. Smith
The Christmas season has come to mean the period when the public plays Santa Claus to the merchants. -John Andrew Holmes
Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny (expletive) Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white butt down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of buttholes this side of the nuthouse. - Clark Griswold, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
The Church does not superstitiously observe days, merely as days, but as memorials of important facts. Christmas might be kept as well upon one day of the year as another; but there should be a stated day for commemorating the birth of our Saviour, because there is danger that what may be done on any day, will be neglected. -Samuel Johnson
"The great majority of people will go on observing forms that cannot be explained; they will keep Christmas Day with Christmas gifts and Christmas benedictions; they will continue to do it; and some day suddenly wake up and discover why." - G.K Chesterton
