It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at my house. The tree is almost decorated. We’re sending Christmas cards out on Friday and the shopping is progressing nicely. All of this has put me in the holiday spirit. So I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes from the LitQuotes Christmas quotations collection.

We’ll keep our Christmas merry still.
