Each year for the past several years I’ve published a list of Christmas quotes; a list of inspiration if you will. It’s no surprise that I think the past couple of years, in particular, have found many of us in need of a little extra dose of holiday inspiration; something to help us find joy in the moment while we hold on to hope for the future. Maybe some sort of Christmas miracle? Or, at the very least a beautiful Christmas melody to make us smile and cry with emotion at the same time.
And with that little musical fanfare, here it is, the
4th 5th annual posting of a few of my favorite Christmas quotes from a few of my favorite people. I hope at least one of them will make you smile, warm your heart or remind you of a Christmas past. And, please, spread a little holiday cheer by adding your favorite quote to the list in a comment below.
