‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there…
~ Clement Clarke Moore
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!! And…a big thank you to the talented people who put the Clay Christmas blends together. I am sure I speak for everyone when I say they are great!!
“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”
“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
