Christmas quotes

What is YOUR favourite Christmas quote?

Mine is surely this:

"He who has not Christmas in his heart will not find it under a tree. " Roy L.Smith


  1. Mine favourite quote is this one: “Somehow, not only for Christmas but all the long year through, The joy that you give to others Is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart's possessing Returns to you glad.”

  2. I'd like to share with you my favourite quote: "Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes."

  3. My favorite quote: "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".

  4. I've read a number of quotes to do with Christmas, for me this one is the best: 'What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.' by Agnes M. Pahro

    1. One of my favourite quotes: “And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans--and all that lives and move upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused--and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.”
      ― Sigrid Undset

  5. Mz favourite guite is :“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
    ― Charles Dickens

  6. What a nice quotation)))
    "Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!"
    Charles Dickens

    I like another one
    "Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful".
    Norman Vincent Peale

  7. My favorite quote is: "Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world."
    ~Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933), American president. Presidential message (December 25, 1927)

  8. I liked quote “It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air”. Those who have Christmas in their heart, they spread its spirit in the air.

  9. I like two quotes and can't decide which one to choose:
    "The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other."
    - Burton Hillis (Better Homes and Gardens)
    And the next one:
    "There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child."
    - Erma Bombeck

  10. Thank you for the quotes!
