Famous Quotes & Quotations About Christmas:

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 traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!
~ Charles Dickens Quotes, The Pickwick Papers, 1836.

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

I can understand people simply fleeing the mountainous effort Christmas has become... but there are always a few saving graces and finally they make up for all the bother and distress.
~ May Sarton Quotes.

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

Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit.
~ Kin Hubbard Quotes.

I do like Christmas on the whole.... In its clumsy way, it does approach Peace and Goodwill. But it is clumsier every year.
~ E.M. Forster Quotes.

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 Quotes.

I hear that in many places something has happened to Christmas; that it is changing from a time of merriment and carefree gaiety to a holiday which is filled with tedium; that many people dread the day and the obligation to give Christmas presents is a nightmare to weary, bored souls; that the children of enlightened parents no longer believe in Santa Claus; that all in all, the effort to be happy and have pleasure makes many honest hearts grow dark with despair instead of beaming with good will and cheerfulness.
~ Julia Peterkin Quotes, A Plantation Christmas, 1934.

I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays - let them overtake me unexpectedly - waking up some find morning and suddenly saying to myself: "Why, this is Christmas Day!"
~ David Grayson Quotes.

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
~ Charles Dickens Quotes.

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church; the Jews called it "Hanukkah" and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukkah!" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall!"
~ Dave Barry Quotes, Christmas Shopping: A Survivor's Guide.

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 Quotes.

Isn't it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for - I don't know what exactly, but it's something that you don't mind so much not having at other times.
~ Kate L. Bosher.

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
~ W.T. Ellis Quotes.

It is the one season of the year when we can lay aside all gnawing worry, indulge in sentiment without censure, assume the carefree faith of childhood, and just plain "have fun." Whether they call it Yuletide, Noel, Weinachten, or Christmas, people around the earth thirst for its refreshment as the desert traveller for the oasis.
~ D.D. Monroe Quotes.

Keep your Christmas-heart open all the year round.
~ Jessica Archmint Quotes.

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 Quotes.

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

If "ifs" and "buts" were candy and nuts, wouldn't it be a Merry Christmas?
~ Don Meredith Quotes.

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
~ Author unknown: Attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby.
