Buon Natale!




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





One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day.  Don't clean it up too quickly.  ~Andy Rooney


Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.  ~Washington Irving

 

 Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.  ~Peg Bracken

 

             
Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.

 
The world's alive with Christmas joy!
Come join the merry throng.
You'll find upon your lips a smile,
Within your heart a song. 
 (N.B. Lybarger) 


Peace on Earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas every day. ~Helen Steiner Rice





Good news from heaven the angels bring. Glad tidings to the Earth they sing: To us this day a child is given. To crown us with the joy of heaven. ~Martin Luther
 
  Christmas is a glorious time of the year, simple in origin, deep in meaning, beautiful in tradition and custom, rich in memories, and charitable in spirit. - Thomas S. Monson
 
  Christmas is more than trees and twinkling lights, more than toys and gifts and baubles of a hundred varieties. It is love. It is the love of the Son of God for all mankind. It is magnificent and beautiful." - Gordon B. Hinckley
 
 
 
  
O Holy Night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appeared
And the soul felt it's worth
The thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder brinks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, o night divine

O Holy Night
The stars are brightly shining
                            It is the night of our dear Savior's birth                                
Long lay the world
In sin and error-pining
Till he appeared
And the soul felt it's worth
The thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder brinks
A new and glorious morn
                                                    Fall on your knees                                                          
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, o night divine
