Merry Christmas!

Postado por Camila Rafaela Felippi às 12/25/2013 08:19:00 PM
Hello everybody! Today I want to wish a Merry Christmas to you. I had lunch with my family and got many gifts (especially chocolate!). I found the site Islandcrisis with the top 35 top Merry Christmas wishes quotes and I decided to post here on my blog, and I also have collected the latest photos of my pine Christmas I and my mother made ​​in recent years!
Have a look...

Christmas is a time when you get homesick – even when you’re home. (Carol Nelson)

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. (Roy L. Smith)

Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space. (Dave Barry)

The earth has grown old with its burden of care but at Christmas it always is young, The heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair And its soul full of music breaks the air, When the song of angels is sung. (Phillips Brooks)

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

Christmas Sun! What holy task is thine! To fold a world in the embrace of God! (Guy Wetmore Carryl)

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)

Christmas is the season when you buy this year’s gifts with next year’s money (Kurt Avish)

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. (Charles Dickens)

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year – and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority. (W.J. Cameron)

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveler, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home! (Charles Dickens)

Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself. (Francis C. Farley)

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. (Burton Hillis)

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. (Laura Ingalls Wilder)

May peace be your gift for this Christmas and the blessing of the Almighty be with you and the world to help us all make this world a better place. To make it a Christmas day everyday of the year. (Kurt Avish)

Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself. (Norman Wesley Brooks)

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing. It makes no noise at all. But softly gives itself away. (Eva Logue)

For the spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest hunger of mankind. (Loring A. Schuler)

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. (Harlan Miller)

Sing hey! Sing hey! For Christmas Day; Twine mistletoe and holly. For a friendship glows In winter snows, And so let’s all be jolly! At Christmas play and make good cheer, For Christmas comes but once a year. (Thomas Tusser)

Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts. (Lenora Mattingly Weber)

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace, The gladness of Christmas give you hope, The warmth of Christmas grant you love. 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)

I love the Christmas-tide, and yet, I notice this, each year I live; I always like the gifts I get, But how I love the gifts I give! (Carolyn Wells)

Tis blessed to bestow, and yet, Could we bestow the gifts we get, And keep the ones we give away, How happy were our Christmas day! (Carolyn Wells)

Except the Christ be born again tonight In dreams of all men, saints and sons of shame, The world will never see his kingdom bright. (Vachel Lindsay)

The earth has grown old with its burden of care, But at Christmas it always is young. (Phillips Brooks)

Let Christmas not become a thing Merely of merchant’s trafficking, Of tinsel, bell and holly wreath And surface pleasure, but beneath The childish glamour, let us find Nourishment for soul and mind. Let us follow kinder ways Through our teeming human maze, And help the age of peace to come From a Dreamer’s martyrdom. (Madeline Morse)

Christmas – that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance – a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. (Augusta E. Rundel)

Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years. Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart. (George Mathhew Adams)

The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas. (W. C. Jones)

Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given–when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes. (Joan Winmill Brown.)

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. (Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas)
