|Brain Candy Quotations|
In the United States Christmas has become the rape
of an idea.
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians
called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukka'
and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People
passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or
'Happy Hanukka!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'"
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, make the Yuletide gay.
Dear Lord, I've been asked, nay commanded, to thank Thee for the
Christmas turkey before us... a turkey which was no doubt a lively,
intelligent bird... a social being... capable of actual affection...
nuzzling its young with almost human- like compassion. Anyway, it's
dead and we're gonna eat it. Please give our respects to its family...
God rest you merry, gentlemen,
Let Us Keep Christmas
Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of
our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth,
and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year.
Silver bells, silver bells,
Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold, clear night
made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherds
and wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby,
the incarnation of perfect love.
May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're
never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.
Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out
faster than the Christmas spirit.
A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a
thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.
I heard the bells, on Christmas Day,
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy
Now, 'Dasher!' now, 'Dancer!' now, 'Prancer' and 'Vixen!'
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
Merry Christmas, Nearly Everybody!
We consider Christmas as the encounter, the great encounter, the
historical encounter, the decisive encounter, between God and mankind.
He who has faith knows this truly; let him rejoice.
I hear that in many places something has happened to Christmas;
that it is changing from a time of merriment and carefree gaiety
to a holiday which is filled with tedium; that many people dread
the day and the obligation to give Christmas presents is a nightmare
to weary, bored souls; that the children of enlightened parents
no longer believe in Santa Claus; that all in all, the effort to
be happy and have pleasure makes many honest hearts grow dark with
despair instead of beaming with good will and cheerfulness.
Love came down at Christmas,
Christmas is the one time of year when people of all religions
come together to worship Jesus Christ.
Christmas begins about the first of December with an office party
and ends when you finally realize what you spent, around April fifteenth
of the next year.
'Twas Christmas broach'd the mightiest ale;
At Christmas I no more desire a rose
Christmas is the day that holds all time together.
The time draws near the birth of Christ;
Christmas is here:
