Than wish a snow in May’s new fangled mirth;
But like of each thing that in season grows.

I heard the bells on CHRISTMAS Day. Their old familiar carols play. And wild and sweet the words repeat. Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

~ Henry. W. Longfellow

So stick up ivy and the bays, and then restore the heathen ways, green will remind you of the Spring, though this great day denies the thing, and mortifies the earth, and all, but your wild revels, and loose hall.

~Henry Vaughan

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat.
Please put a penny in the old man’s hat.
If you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do.
If you haven’t got a ha’penny, then God bless you.

~English traditional Christmas rhyme

I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.

~Charles Dickens

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

~Clement C. Moore

England was merry England, when
Old Christmas brought his sports again.
‘Twas Christmas broach’d the mightiest ale;
‘Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;
A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
A poor man’s heart through half the year.

~Sir Walter Scott

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.

~Christina Rossetti
