“May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!”  Author Unknown

“When Christmas bells are swinging above the fields of snow,We hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago,And etched on vacant placesAre half-forgotten facesOf friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Christmas Fancies

"For the spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest hunger of mankind." Loring A. Schuler 

"Let Christmas not become a thing

Merely of merchant's trafficking,

And surface pleasure, but beneath

The childish glamour let us find

Nourishment for heart and mind.

Let us follow kinder ways

Through our teeming human maze,

And help the age of peace to come." 

Madeline Morse, True Christmas
