Christmas quotes:

Santa Claus has the right idea - visit people only once a year. -Victor Borge

A good many things go around in the dark besides Santa Claus. - Herbert Hoover

The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.
― George Carlin

A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together. ― Garrison Keillor

Okay I'll be serious!

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

Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no persuasion move thee, to do anything which thou knowest to be evil; so shalt thou always live jollity; for a good conscience is a continual Christmas. - Benjamin Franklin

And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans--and all that lives and move upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused--and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.
― Sigrid Undset

Christmas, my child, is love in action.          ~ Dale Evans (1912-2001)
American film actress, singer and songwriter. Wife of Roy Rogers.
