Clay Aiken – “The Joy That You Bring To Others.”

Christmas happens only once a year, but it it one of the most exciting times of the year! Writers have always had a lot to  say  about the Christmas holiday and all the things that surround this special time of year!  The following are a few  quotes from famous authors who had some things to say about the Holidays!!

“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus.”

– Francis Pharcellus Church

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

– Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old, familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Love came down at Christmas;

Love all lovely, love divine;

Love was born at Christmas,

Stars and angels gave the sign.”

– Christina Rossetti

“Somehow, not only for Christmas

But all the long year through,

The joy that you give to others

Is the joy that comes back to you.

“And the more you spend in blessing The poor and lonely and sad,

The more of your heart’s possessing

Returns to you glad.”

– John Greenleaf Whittier
