“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

Just hear those sleigh bells jing-a-ling-ring-ting-a-ding-a-ling-ding, ring-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding.  Have another drink.  It might help.

“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

“It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.”
― Dylan Thomas, A Child’s Christmas in Wales

One Christmas my brother and I sang this :  Deck the halls with poison ivy, fa la la la la la la la la.  Santa will get red and hivey, fa la la la la la la la la.  Well.  We were kids, not poets.

“A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away; While quite unselfish, it grows small.”
― Eva K. Logue

I like to drink French wine by candlelight - Bourgogne, cabernet sauvignon, chateneuf du Pape. If I consume enough of it I can even properly pronounce their names. I swear it's true.  You should try it.

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.

What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Presents aren’t important you know; in fact, I’m happy getting the same thing this year as I got last year. Last year I got fat. I still have the dress that goes with it.
