"Christmas casts its glow upon us, as it does every year. And it reminds us that we need not feel lonely because we are loved, loved with the greatest love there has ever been or ever will be."
"In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior."
John Quincy Adams
"How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep holidays than Commandments."
