“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
