Let your holidays be associated with great public events,
and they may be the life of patriotism as well as a source of relaxation and personal employment.
The holiest of all holidays are those kept by ourselves in silence
and apart, the secret anniversaries of the heart, when the full tide
of feeling overflows.
As a die-hard foodie, my ultimate holiday is of course Thanksgiving. I wait for this day for 364 days, and the moment it's over I begin running ideas through the back of my head for the next one.
Jan Charles, Happier Holidays
I don't really need much to enjoy a good holiday - just my family and
the bare essentials.
Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday
of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.
As we get older, we often change into a blinkered mind-set and

are continuously saving for a holiday that we have booked or we
are too busy working to take a moment and see what once made us joyful.
Danielle Tinning, How to Succeed
A holiday is a time to take a break from the routine of everyday life.

If you really want to find out the level of commitment and dedication
to the job, ask them if they ever take a holiday where they are not
in touch with their company staff by either phone, email or blackberry.

where they are.

they are joyous, content, and satisfied with everything.

Orison Swett Marden, Character
Christmas is not just an annual holiday. It is not a day to glorify selfishness
and materialism. Christmas is the celebration of the event that set heaven
to singing, an event that gave the stars of the night sky a new brilliance.
Some of my fondest memories are holidays by the seaside.
Holidays are enticing only for the first week or so.
After that, it is no longer such a novelty to rise late and have little to do.

Not just opening doors; also closing them behind you, never to return.
But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see
whenever you shut your eyes.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it
with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Uncles and aunts, and cousins, are all very well, and fathers and
mothers are not to be despised; but a grandmother, at holiday time,
is worth them all.
Retirement may be looked upon either as a prolonged holiday or as a rejection, a being thrown on to the scrap-heap.
Simone de Beauvoir

Like how much we've missed out on.
Holidays, parties, vacations and sports,
We will wonder where life has gone.
Julie Hebert, Do Less
Poems about Life

as a whole than any other holiday that we observe.
Lucretia Walker Hardy

qualities of peace, of generosity, and of understanding. No matter how
we choose to celebrate this season . . . this time of year reminds us
that the beliefs that unite us are far greater than those which divide us.
Shawn Graham and Roxanne Reeves, 2009 Christmas message
