Happy Holidays to You and Yours! * GIVEAWAY *


I’m a proverbs nut. Yep, I spend too much time surfing the Internet for wise words from all walks of life. I’d like to leave you with some of my favorites today about the Holiday Season.
Whether you observe Christmas, Hanukah or another holiday celebration, may yours be filled with wonder, and most of all love.
All my best,

Time was with most of us, when Christmas Day, encircling all our limited world like a magic ring, left nothing out for us to miss or seek; bound together all our home enjoyments, affections, and hopes; grouped everything and everyone round the Christmas fire, and make the little picture shining in our bright young eyes, complete. 
Charles Dickens

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. 
Agnes M. Pharo

It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart. 
Marjorie Holmes

Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas. All else is outward display–so much tinsel and decorations. For it isn’t the holly, it isn’t the snow. It isn’t the tree not the firelight’s glow. It’s the warmth that comes to the hearts of men when the Christmas spirit returns again.
