Merry Christmas :)

"If my Valentine you won't be
I'll hang myself on my Christmas tree."

~Ernest Hemingway

88 Poems

Okay, I know, that quote really doesn't seem like a great poem for such a family holiday.
Let's try again.

"... freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin
inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night... ."

~John Geddes
A Familiar Rain

That's better, but not quite right either!

"He was a simple honest man. He never strayed,
He never drank  he never smoked, and he never kissed a maid.
And when he passed away his insurance was denied.
Because he never lived, they claimed he never died."

~Ted Gup
A Secret Gift: How One Man's Kindness & A Trove Of Letters
Reveal The Hidden History Of The Great Depression

Hmmm... That last one leaves us with something to think about,
 but it's not very festive.

"Christmas, when observed with the right spirit, 
still has the power to call miracles from 
Heaven to Earth."
~Richelle E Goodrich
Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings For Every Day Of The Year
