Christmas Quotes December 9, 2020

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Music & Dance.

People act like the North Pole and the South Pole are exactly the same, but there’s a whole world of difference between them.

“Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.”  Harlan Miller

“Fresh cut Christmas trees smell of stars and snow and pine resin—inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night.”  John Geddes

“Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.”  Peg Bracken

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”  Norman Vincent Peale

Aah . . . that’s better!

Wonderful quotes! I especialy love the one about putting our love into words.

I expect that love is what motivated shoppers to stand in endless lines for Cabbage Patch dolls and Beanie Babies and Chia Pets!

But there’s also the competitive nature of shoppers to consider. 😯

Very true!

I wonder if Covid has changed things ~ maybe people will focus more on togetherness and less on opening piles and piles of presents in the coming years.

That would be nice. And good for the planet!

Lovely Nancy. I agree with the comment above 🙂

Glad you enjoyed, Rainee.

I miss the smell of a real tree although I haven’t had one in decades. I can still remember!

Same here, Kate. Fresh Market often has fragrant wreaths hanging in the vestibule as you enter the store. The aroma brings back the magic of the holidays for me.

I have a pine scent candle (no it doesn’t smell like Pine Sol) from Yankee candle that helps somewhat although I usually burn the gingerbread one. Yum! That can perk up my spirit!

Gingerbread would bring back memories of mom in the kitchen. She was a happy baker!

4. Kellie - December 9, 2020

I love the first quote, and I think as time goes on we realise how blessed we are to share the day with loved ones.

nrhatch - December 9, 2020

I expect that that’s exactly what people would like to do this Christmas ~ spend it with loved ones.

5. Debra - December 9, 2020

These are all really nice quotes, Nancy.A month ago I wasn’t sure I was going to feel particularly cheery about Christmas, but I am. I think the focus is entirely different for me this year, as it will be for many. I’m just grateful to have my family healthy and a part of my life, even though distanced. It’s a lovely time to think about what really matters, and it sure isn’t the trappings!

Like you, I’m doing my best to remain buoyant in the midst of a less than stellar year ~> when all else fails, I make soup. 😀

Confession: I haven’t found the requisite Christmas Spirit to tackle a few Christmas Traditions. BFF said, “you can’t force it.” I replied, “I could force it, but I won’t.”

Ah, well, there’s always next year. Keep breathing!
