LET US remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide-open heart that thinks of others first.
-George Matthew Adams
UNLESS WE make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it “white.”
THE JOY that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.
-John Greenleaf Whittier
CHRISTMAS IS more than a time of music, merriment and mirth; it is a season of meditation, mangers and miracles. Christmas is more than a time of carols, cards and candy; it is a season of dedication and decision.
-William Arthur Ward
THE GREATEST thing is not to believe in Santa Claus; it is to be Santa Claus.
CHRISTMAS IS the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
CHRISTMAS DAY is a day of joy and charity. May God make you very rich in both.
I LOVE THE Christmas-tide, and yet, I notice this, each year I live; I always like the gifts I get, but how I love the gifts I give!
CHRISTMAS MEANS “giving,” and the gift without the giver is bare. Give of yourselves; give of your substance; give of your heart and mind.
-Gordon B Hinckley
THE MANNER of giving is worth more than the gift.
CHRISTMAS IS most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.
-Ruth Carter Stapleton
CHRISTMAS HAS a way of bringing out the best in everyone.
THE EXCELLENCE of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.
-Charles Dudley Warner
CHRISTMAS, MY child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
I LOVE EVERYTHING about the holidays: the decorations, the parties, and spending time with friends and family. What I love most is that feeling of giving back. Every bit counts.
TO CELEBRATE the heart of Christmas is to forget ourselves in the service of others.
-Henry C. Link
THE CHRISTMAS spirit is the spirit of those who, like their Master, live their whole lives on the principle of making themselves poor - spending and being spent - to enrich their fellow humans, giving time, trouble, care and concern, to do good to others - and not just their own friends - in whatever way there seems need.
PRESENTS ARE made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.
-Carlos Ruiz Zafon
CHRISTMAS IS doing a little something extra for someone.
-Charles M. Schulz
EVERY GIFT which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection.
THE JOY of brightening other lives, bearing each other’s burdens, easing other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
-William Carey Jones
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 ourselves.
A HOLIDAY GIVES one a chance to look backward and forward; to reset oneself by an inner compass.
