Is it here again?
It's only just been fireworks night and yet I am already in the mood for christmas, thinking what to get people, thinking what I would like. This is why I found this quote rather different:
"There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child" Erma Bombeck (1927-1996), American author and humorist.
It was a quote that I really didn't agree with. Obviously when you are younger christmas is a lot more exciting, there is father christmas and his reindeers, you get bought presents instead of buying them yourselves and are faced with a lot of wrapping paper and a lot of toys to keep you occupied. But that isn't the only reason people love christmas, which is why I would disagree with this quote. I would never say, for the majority of people, the people are sad waking up on christmas morning?
"Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas." Peg Bracken.
Although as cheesy as it sounds, I saw this and thought this was more like it. The love of people around because everyone is happy on christmas day is surely felt by a lot of people? And I believe these quotes allows and can be relateable to a lot more people than just children, it is a celebration for all, not just the young.
"This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone."Taylor Caldwell (1900-1985), English novelist.
This focusses on the idea of family, close friends and the people that you like having around you. Christmas is a time where some of us only see our family once a year, a lot of things in our world can get in the way of spending time with our whole extended family, but at christmas everyone makes the effort to see each other and enjoy their company. It is an excuse for everyone to come together.
I don't know about you but I love christmas ... 45 days to go!
