I wrapped my Christmas presents early this year, but used the wrong paper. See the paper I used said "Happy Birthday" on it. I didn't want to waste it so I just wrote "Jesus" on it.

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!'
The spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest hunger of mankind.
As many mince pies as you taste at Christmas' so many happy months will you have.
At Christmas play, and make good cheer, for Christmas comes but once a year.thomas tusser
Some people are born for Halloween, and some are just counting the days until Christmas.Stephen Graham Jones
Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
"Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the new-born king." Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!Charles Wesley
Christmas quotes often reflect upon the idea that Christmas is a magical time of year. From beautifully decorated trees and fresh baked gingerbread cookies to the joy on a child's face as he sees Santa for the first time, it's hard to deny the festive spirit of Christmas. "Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful," Norman Vincent Peale said.
One of the best things about Christmas is that there is no right or wrong way to celebrate. If you're too busy to decorate and bake cookies, take a few shortcuts to save time. If you're worried about spoiling your children with material goods, you can keep the focus on family time or church celebrations instead of a mountain of toys under the tree. You have the freedom to make memories with your loved ones however you see fit. "There is no ideal Christmas; only the one Christmas you decide to make as a reflection of your values, desires, affections, traditions," Bill McKibben said.
Although December 25 comes but once a year, Christmas quotes often reflect upon the idea that we should keep the Christmas spirit in our hearts each day. Being kind, generous, and loving is a gift that keeps on giving. "Peace on earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas every day," Helen Steiner Rice said.
