Christmas is a time to cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous
in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
I truly believe that if we keep telling the Christmas story, singing
the Christmas songs, and living the Christmas spirit, we can bring joy
and happiness and peace to this world.
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the
year to remind us that we're here for something else besides
Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the
home, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a
happy family all wrapped up in each other.
Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love.
