“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!”

­— From Dr. Seuss' “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”

“How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!”

— Benjamin Franklin

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

— Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' “A Christmas Carol.”

“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 Christmastime.”

— Laura Ingalls Wilder

“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

“Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.”

— Larry Wilde

“A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;

It makes no noise at all,

But softly gives itself away.”

— Eva Logue

“I love the Christmastide, and, yet,

I notice this, each year I live;

I always like the gifts I get,

But how I love the gifts I give!”

— Carolyn Wells
