Have a Happy Christmas

Here are some literary Christmas quotes to encourage you to feel merry and bright today.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

'I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old, familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!'

Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol:

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

Louisa May Alcott, Little Women:

’The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.’

Jane Austen, Emma:

'At Christmas every body invites their friends about them, and people think little of even the worst weather. I was snowed up at a friend’s house once for a week. Nothing could be pleasanter.’
