"Christmas, children, is not a date.  It is a state of mind."  – Mary Ellen Chase (Author, educator)

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." -Charles Dickens (Author, journalist, orator)

"Christmas is forever, not for just one day,

for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away

like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.

The good you do for others is good you do yourself…"

– Norman Wesley Brooks (Poet)

"I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old, familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men! "

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (poet)

Don't be cynical about Christmas, enjoy it for what it is.
If we are lucky it's 
a time of magic for children
a time of togetherness for families
a time for merriment for friendships 
and above all
a time for giving. 
What a lovely holiday. – peace and love – urban ascetic (ordinary guy)
