It's Christmas Time

  1. Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
    [Calvin Coolidge]

  2. He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
    [Roy L. Smith]

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

  4. I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
    [Charles Dickens]

  5. I’m sure most of us remember being a kid and you have all of this endless time where two weeks before Christmas feels like ten years. I used to go to bed to try and go to sleep to try and make it go faster.
    [Andrea Arnold]

  6. Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us – a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead.
    [David Cameron]

  7. The Christmas story has such power and such appeal every year. There are other stories we get tired of. You think of your favorite movie; you don’t want to watch it 15 times.
    [Frederica Mathewes-Green]

  8. I grew up asking for everything under the sun for Christmas, but I knew I wasn’t going to get it all.
    [Faith Hill]

  9. Christmas in L.A. is weird. There’s no snow. It’s not even cold.
    [Ellie Goulding]

  10. I love presents, But since I’ve gotten older, I haven’t really wanted anything. Christmas is about family.
    [Jacob Latimore]

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

  1. MC thank you for this post!!

    You know, it is interesting that the only thing that nature produces for this wonderful time of the year is the material to create the objects we humans use to celebrate this holiday.

    Now the tree’s grow on there own kinda, but even they need the carbon dioxide, at least that is what I have been told but maybe it is we need them but they don’t need us so much…. not sure about that one. 🙂 I mean who would measure the health of the trees if man was not here and whether there is some other substance here on earth that would provide the carbon dioxide that trees need if humans were not here?

    One might even say that nature also produces the conditions necessary for the creation of this holiday, meaning the winter solstice as well as the birth of people that created the holiday as well as all the decorations and things? I mean we did not create ourselves, although we (man with women) did take part in the creation, right?

    Anyway, I see two parts to this “onederful” (The Ful One) time of the year. Part one material matter. Part two emotions, which are separate and do not totally depend on material matter.

    In a sense they do matter here on earth, but if one can look at them, say beyond the point of physical death, one can see that only the body that undergoes “reconstruction” at least that is what our natural sciences tells us, (right? while the emotions rise to another and unseen place for maybe another go around.

    Now I like what Calvin says above that Christmas is not a time or a season but it is about having a state of mind.

    It is interesting that one might argue that the creation of this day by a government official has a positive effect on commerce, or the movement or flow of things as well as an effect on emotions, and we know that they have the property of flowing as well.

    Then Jacob Latimore and Burton Hillis add that as they have grown older, this time is less about things, and more about emotions.

    Happy ones and of togetherness!

    “I feel we should all “Marry Happiness” above all!!!

    Wow, where would we be without thoughts?

    • I have to make a correction here MC (LOL) as I said that “they (emotions) do not matter so much here on earth,” and maybe not for the existence of material matter itself but if man is to complete the journey back to its point of origin then they do matter very much. 🙂

      Looking at it another way I am not so certain that one can fully separate emotions from material matter but I shaln’t worry myself with this! LOL!!!

        • It is quite funny MC as I just read what I wrote above and to me… it sounds a bit gibberish… LOL! It is also interesting how one can write a series of thoughts and feel they are coherent and then one returns at a later date to find them a bit flat.

          I hope they made you laugh a bit. 🙂 <3
