Of all nights of the year there is not one that is more anxiously awaited by young people than the night that precedes Christmas. Then begins the great festival of the year;
the festival in honour of the birth of Christ; the festival that reminds us of the Child born in a manger, of the shepherds near Bethlehem watching their flocks by night,
and of the angels that sang of peace and goodwill to men. It is the most joyous of all holiday seasons; prepared for long before, and remembered pleasantly long afterwards.
Hamish Hendry, Holidays & Happy Days

No other holiday has so rich an heritage of old customs and observances
Henry Van Dyke, The Spirit of Christmas
In God's sight, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas whenever we
simplicity of His love and bow down in thankfulness and worship,
where we are and whatever
our circumstances. That's when we begin seeing ourselves more clearly and learn to take
time for Jesus.
Whether you serve the plump crispy turkey, or something exotic wrapped in pandanus leaves,
the feeling of Christmas is there. It is in the mind and in the heart. The faith we have
in the good rises like a tide and wherever we are, we feel it. Christmas graces any board
and gives a new lift to our life, and as we hear once more the familiar carols, we thank
God for the birth of his Son.

come at any season, if that
Sense of love were strong in the family.
Dale Evans Rogers
But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas-time, when it has come around-apart
from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can
apart from that - as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant 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, A Christmas Carol
People say there are no more miracles, that God does not
exist. But just look at
Christmas - a time when people express kindness, a time when
the world stops and actually has peace, a time when people share
with others - a miracle, part of God's plan!
The Christmas story is told in the Bible in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.
Each gospel writer reports different aspects of the story.
George C. Dagnall, Christmas - The Story Is Told
The season of Advent, in effect, kicks off the Christmas celebrations.
The parties start, the decorations and lights go up,
and the Christmas music begins to play. When Christmas finally arrives,
we are already saturated and satiated with the
delights of the season - we're ready to move on.
Ronald Rolheiser, OMI
What Is The Christmas Spirit
It always amazes me how people will dress in Jeans and a T-shirt for
church and Christmas but wear a "nice dress" to a wedding.
I think that we need to give the same amount of respect to Jesus
and his birthday that we would give someone getting married.
Tawra J. Kellam; Jill Cooper, Homemade Christmas

love will shine on you and fill your heart with overwhelming joy.
M. Lawrence, Commit to God on Christmas Day 2016 God will Bless You
Once a year, each Christmas, for a few days at least, we and millions of
our neighbors turn aside from
our preoccupations with life reduced to biology or economics
or psychology and join together in a
community of wonder.
Quotes about Life |
Christmas is, after all, the story of the Creator entering into his creation -
a creation that has been marred
by human sin and weakness. It is the story of a God who does not
disdain this world, despite its frailty,
ambiguities, and messiness. The God who became a helpless babe
in a stable entered into our human
anxieties and confusions and redeemed them.
Greg Pennoyer, God With Us Reader's Edition: Rediscovering the Meaning of Christmas
In scene after scene - in the womb in Nazareth, in the manger in Bethlehem, in the Temple in Jerusalem –
the spotlight consistently shines on Jesus. He is, after all, what the story is all about. He is what the waiting
of Advent and the celebration at Christmas are all about. He is, as they say,
"the reason for the season."
Darrell W. Johnson, The Most Wonderful Time of All Years: A Christmas Reader for the Season of Advent
"God made no mistake, then, he gave us no small and common gift,
but he did his best and gave the world the greatest possible
Christmas Gift when this Child was born."
James H. Snowden, A Wonderful Night; An Interpretation Of Christmas
Don't lose your sense of wonder just because the Christmas story is familiar.
Great little one!
Whose all-embracing birth
Lifts earth to heaven,
stoops heaven to earth.
Inspirational Poems |
It has been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Perhaps this is true, but because of Christmas,
those who behold and believe can also experience
beauty in their hearts and souls.
Paul M Miller, Christmas Prayers: A Heartwarming Collection of Holiday Blessings
My fondest memories of Christmas include our family traditions
of putting treasured ornaments and lights on the tree, decorating
our home, and placing special Christmas books on the coffee table.
June Cotner, Christmas Blessings: Prayers and Poems to Celebrate the Season
I believe that cultural holidays give us an opportunity to reflect
the light that we have received from God. In so doing, we may
be God's instrument in bringing men, women, and children
to experience the forgiveness and eternal life that Christ came to offer.
"But the joy that replaced the shepherds' fear can do the same for us.
Christmas is the time to remember that fear is banished by joyful faith
in "a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
We know the desire to forgive, to reconnect, to be generous.
Will these sentiments last beyond Christmas or are they only part of the
"packaging" of Christmas?
S. Joseph Krempa, Captured Fire: Seasonal and Sanctoral Cycle, Year Two
God doesn't want us to live disconnected from him. Peace with God doesn't
come from something we do.
Peace with God comes from what Jesus Christ did for us on the
cross. God wants to give you that important peace this Christmas season.
As we prepare ourselves for this Christmas season, we need to remember
there is a reason to celebrate! It has nothing to do with anything ordinary.
It is something that happened 2,000 years ago. We were given an incredible
gift: the Christ Child who ultimately sacrifices his very life that
we may have eternal life with him. It is with this joy that we sing
and praise him.
Margie Harding, Christmas Countdown: Creating 25 Days of New Advent Traditions for Families
Christmas mornings are such an exciting time. Many people wake
up with a sense of expectation. Something exciting. For children it's a time
of absolute craziness.
Gary Dickinson, Christmas Traditions Around The World
The celebration of Advent is possible only to those who are
troubled in soul, who know themselves to be poor and imperfect,
and who look forward to something greater to
Christmas is a season of traditions. To most kids, that jolly old
elf is the very face of Christmas - and that face is everywhere this time of year.
Max Lucado, Because of Bethlehem Study Guide: Love is Born Hope is Here
For Those Who Do Not Believe |
How can we best keep Christmas? How can we best defeat the
little bit of Scrooge in all of us and experience the glory of the Great Day?
By sinking the shafts of our spirits
deep beneath the sparkling tinsel of the surface of Christmas and
renewing within us the radiance of the inner meaning of the season.
