Quotes of the Day for 25 December 2002 – Christmas
The baby Jesus was born at Bethlehem. For today, ignore the fact that this was sometime between 6 and 4 BC, and was probably in the early spring; He won't mind if we get the date wrong. He would mind if I failed to wish you Peace and many blessings in the year ahead. From Whidbey to Wherever, Merry Christmas!
Many merry Christmases, friendships, great accumulation of cheerful recollections, affection on earth, and Heaven at last for all of us.
- Charles Dickens

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.
- Lucinda Franks
Love came down at Christmas;
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Stars and angels gave the sign.
- Christina Georgina Rossetti
