The Real Meaning of Christmas [Quotations by famous authors] by Pantelis Liakas
”I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year”.
”Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas”.
”Christmas is a tonic for our souls. It moves us to think of others rather than of ourselves. It directs our thoughts to giving”.
B. C. Forbes
”The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than in things”.
Thomas S. Monson
”He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree”.
Roy L. Smith
Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.
”Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate the love of God and family and to create memories that will last forever. Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift. The amazing thing is that not only are we able to receive this gift, but we are able to share it with others on Christmas and every other day of the year”.
”Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone”.
Charles M. Schulz
”Christmas is a season which almost all Christians observe in one way or another. Some keep it as a religious season. Some keep it as a holiday. But all over the world, wherever there are Christians, in one way or another Christmas is kept”.
J. C. Ryle
”The war in Iraq – if Osama was a Christian – it’s the Christmas present he never would have expected.
People think it’s terribly sad to spend Christmas alone, but it’s no sadder, really, than spending any other day alone, is it?”
”You have to remind kids to stay connected to the meaning of Christmas. Sometimes it takes a little bit of effort, but it’s so worth it”.
”I throw a Christmas party at my house. It’s not really a Christmas party, because I don’t want to call it a Christmas party.
But let’s just say I put a lot of Christmas trees around the house, so it smells good”.
”The Christian faith can never be separated from the soil of sacred events, from the choice made by God, who wanted to speak to us, to become man, to die and rise again, in a particular place and at a particular time”.
Pope Benedict XVI
”One of the best Christmas presents I ever got was the globe that I now keep right beside my desk”.
”The tradition of putting candles on Christmas trees actually began in Germany. The person who came up with the idea is thought to have been Martin Luther, father of the Reformation”.
”Christmas is a story that has both religious and pagan origins, and to ignore its power is to ignore the power of myth – those symbols and legends that help us to ground our lives”.
”I like indoor Christmas trees. And I like people who decorate their homes with lights and all that crap. I think it’s a healthy outlet for them. If they weren’t covering their lawns with twinkling lights, they’d be doing something that was really, really creepy”.
”Christmas is a bridge. We need bridges as the river of time flows past. Today’s Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday”.
