Love all lovely, love divine;

Stars and angels gave the sign."

I thought I would bring a selection of quotes, after searching through many Christmas quotes it shows that they can be funny, factual, warming and inspirational.
There are so many quotes and it made me realize how huge christmas has become. To us it is the norm because we have all experienced this holiday being huge since we have been young, but now christmas takes over everything, the charts, tv channels, shops, adverts, finances, house decorations.. all for one day. But I guess it is the amount of effort we put into this one day is what makes it so special and something worth celebrating.
It is the last week of university for me before the Christmas holidays, which means rather than concentrating on the remaining lectures and work to do, today we had a 'fake christmas' with secret santa and a big christmas meal. I made a card and searched through these quotes in order to find a quote I could put in. I loved the quotes that brought humour to this festive season, cause no matter how much we say Christmas is a time of love and family, it is also a time for presents and a lot of money spent! It was the quotes like these that were realistic and humorous which I liked the most. They bring that cheer and happiness that we need at christmas.
