Merry Christmas

Today is the day. December 25, Christmas Day, Santa’s Day … it has a few different names, but regardless, its purpose remains constant; it is a day of celebration on a global spectrum.

Without beating a dead horse, I suppose I should make mention of the fact that Christmas 2020 is a hell of a lot different than Christmas celebrations in past years. Most of us will be spending the day at home, with or without our closest friends and family, and while this may not compare to our typical Christmas endeavors, it’s still something.

I thought it might be beneficial to share some festive Christmas quotes with you in case anyone is in need of a Christmas-spirit boost. These come from countryliving.com.

“Freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin—inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night.” – John J. Geddes

“Nothing ever seems too bad, too hard, or too sad when you’ve got a Christmas tree in the living room.” – Nora Roberts

“Christmas is the day that holds all time together.” – Alexander Smith

“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.” – Ruth Carter Stapleton

“Some Christmas tree ornaments do more than glitter and glow, they represent a gift of love given a long time ago.” – Tom Baker

“Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows.” – Edwin Osgood Grover

“Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.” – Harlan Miller

“God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If He gives us the gift of Christmas, it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it.” – Pope Francis

Merry Christmas, folks.
