At Christmas A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year; He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season's here; Then he's thinking more of others than he's thought the months before, And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.

From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it. ~Katharine Whitehorn

Christmas is the day that holds all time together. ~Alexander Smith

When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs? ~G.K. Chesterton
