Christmas Morning

Prompts and Challenges

A few of my favorite quotes on this fine blustery morning…

The two most joyous times of the year are Christmas morning and the end of school. ~ Alice Cooper

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

Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice. ~ Dave Barry

What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day. ~Phyllis Diller

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

The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn’t for any religious reasons. They couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin. ~ Jay Leno

I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up – they have no holidays. ~ Henny Youngman

I love the excess of Christmas. The shopping season that begins in September, the bad pop star recordings of Christmas carols, the decorations that don’t know when to come down. ~ Mo Rocca

And, in all seriousness…

Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values. ~ Thomas S. Monson

Wishing you all the joy of giving

    Thomas S Monson’s quote is great, too. He’s LDS, right?
