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


Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions

of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the

pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and

the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his

own fire-side and his quiet home! 

~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836


Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and

love of kindred, and we are better throughout the

year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.

~Laura Ingalls Wilder
