My 10 Favorite Christmas Quotes

These are my ten favorite quotes relative to Christmas, whether from movies or television shows, books or, yes, the internet. Again, as with the movie list, they are listed as they pop into my head and not by any preference. I thought I might try to make this a little fun and see if any of you recognize where the quotes come from (some, of course, are obvious). Let me know in the comment section!

  1. “Christmas…halfway out of the dark.”
  2. “For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”
  3. “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
  4. “To kindness and love, the things we need most!”
  5. “Look daddy, teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.”
  6. “[Christmas] is the season for kindling, not merely the fire of hospitality in the hall, but the genial flame of charity in the heart…”
  7. “We are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime.”
  8. “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
  9. “Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand.”
  10. “…with razzleberry dressing!”

And yes, more than ten, but I seem to make a habit of that: “Christmas can be celebrated in the school room with pine trees, tinsel and reindeers, but there must be no mention of the man whose birthday is being celebrated. One wonders how a teacher would answer if a student asked why it was called Christmas.”
