Christmas is coming. It is a holiday that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ. It is also a time of joy, happiness, peace and silence. The modern customs include church celebrations, giving gifts, sending postcards, traditional meals and decorating.
I particularly like the following quotations about Christmas:
"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year."
"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)
"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."
(Norman Vincent Peale)
