Merry Christmas!

We wait a year to celebrate Christmas. Yet when we plan our celebration, we tend to forget those who serve us unfailingly. We gather and enjoy with friends and family. But we forget to invite those who are alone in this world. This Christmas, let us try to bring a bit joy to others by an act of kindness. These inspirational Christmas quotes will help us understand the true meaning of giving.
  • George Matthew Adams
    Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.

Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.

  • Robert Johnston
    What's going on here is a redefinition of Christmas as a time of family celebration rather than as a time of the community faithful celebrating the birth of the savior... there is a risk that we will lose one more of our Christian rituals, one that's at the heart of our faith.

  • Maurice Grimaud
    Not to open the hunting season on the pretext that there is no game would be as if one gave up celebrating Christmas because there was not enough snow to go by sleigh to midnight Mass.

    Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.

  • Alexander Smith

  • Wendy Cope
    Bloody Christmas, here again, let us raise a loving cup, peace on earth, goodwill to men, and make them do the washing up.

  • Louisa May Alcott
    The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.

  • Alfred, Lord Tennyson
    The time draws near the birth of Christ: The moon is hid; the night is still; the Christmas bells from hill to hill answer each other in the mist.

  • Bob Hope
    My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
  • Upton Sinclair
    Consider Christmas -- could Satan in his most malignant mood have devised a worse combination of graft plus bunkum than the system whereby several hundred million people get a billion or so gifts for which they have no use, and some thousands of shop clerks die of exhaustion while selling them, and every other child in the Western world is made ill from overeating -- all in the name of the lowly Jesus?

  • Stuart Briscoe
    The spirit of Christmas needs to superseded by the Spirit of Christ. The spirit of Christmas is annual; the Spirit of Christ is eternal. The spirit of Christmas is sentimental; the Spirit of Christ is supernatural. The spirit of Christmas is a human product; the Spirit of Christ is a divine person. That makes all the difference in the world.

  • Agnes M. Pharo
    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.

  • Rev Billy Graham
    The very purpose of Christ's coming into the world was that he might offer up his life as a sacrifice for the sins of men. He came to die. This is the heart of Christmas.
  • Dale Evans
    Christmas, my child, is love in action.
  • W. J. Tucker

    Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
