2. Carol Nelson: Christmas is a time when you get homesick – even when you’re home.
3. Helen Keller: The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.
4. Harlan Miller: Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.
5. Shirley Temple: I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
6. Norman Vincent Peale: Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
7. Mary Ellen Chase: Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
8. W.J. Cameron:There has been only one Christmas – the rest are anniversaries.
9. Larry Wilde: Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
10. Charles Dickens: I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
