My quotes this Sunday are about Christmas. It's a holiday that many of us celebrate and it is worth mentioning since we are 4 days away and most of us have flutters in our stomach about it.

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

*~ I love the time I get with my friends this time of year! I have an annual Yule party (which is getting bigger every year) and it's a night where we all just enjoy the time with one another, little drama, great drinks, tons of food and gifts!

Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes." ~ Joan Winmill Brown, American author and editor.

*~ I know a few people who hate the holidays, I can't imagine not having the feeling of the holidays in my heart for the month. I love it. I love wrapping gifts, imagining people's faces when they open their gifts and the morning rush to the front room seeing what "santa" has left them. It's a wonderful feeling of hot chocolate, peppermint and hugs... all in your heart!

The perfect Christmas tree? All Christmas trees are perfect!" ~ Charles N. Barnard, American author, travel writer.

*~ This is so true, though I must say.. in my heart of hearts, very few Christmas trees are as imprinted in my mind than this one will be. It's like a picture perfect image burned in my memory. Here is Dave dragging his tree to the truck!

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

*~ What a beautiful thought... Christmas for a year.. once a month with your children, or even just the one you love... One day... One year I'll do this!

Which Christmas is the most vivid to me? It's always the next Christmas."
~ Joanne Woodward (1930- ), American film actress.

*~ So true... Having this be the first Christmas I have with my new beau, I know that the next one.. and the one after will be even better. We will know more about each other, we will have a full year of memories and another year to create our traditions. Not a Christmas has gone by that I don't love the thought of the next one.

Thanks for reading this weeks "Quotable Sunday".

Happy Holidays to you and yours! Warm Blessings and a fruitful 2009!

I love the quote that speaks of a Perfect Christmas Tree. No matter how crooked the trunk or the number of bare spots, in the end they always turn out perfect.

Thanks for stopping by.
