Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.
It is good to be merry and wise. It is good to be honest and true. It is best to be off with the old love, before you are on with the new.

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'

For so work the honey-bees, Creatures that by a rule in nature teach The act of order to a peopled kingdom. They have a king and officers of sorts, Where some, like magistrates, correct at home, Others, like merchants, venture trade abroad, Others like soldiers, armed in their stings, Make boot upon the summers velvet buds, Which pillage they with merry march bring home.william shakespeare
Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt; And every Grin, so merry, draws one out.john wolcot
