Here are some quotes on Christmas:

Shirley Temple: “I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was 6. Mother brought me to see him in the department store – and he asked for my autograph!”


Helen Keller: “The only blind person at Christmas is he who has not Christmas in his heart.”

Bob Hope: “When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things not the great occasions give off the greatest glow of happiness.”


Bart Simpson: “Christmas is a time when people of all religions come together to worship Jesus Christ.”

Calvin Coolidge: “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”

Charles Dickens: “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year through.”

Janice Maeditere: “Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.”

Bob Hope: “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: Loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”

Jesus Christ: “My first and foremost commandment is that you love the Father with all your heart, mind and being – and the second commandment: Love your neighbor as you love yourself!”
