My thoughts on these quotes

I agree with all the quotes that say we should maintain the atmosphere of Christmas throughout the year. The attention we pay to people, the warm atmosphere we create during these holidays, spending time together with our family and friends – these are the joys for which we often run out of time during the year. In this December time, we become the best version of ourselves as we express our love, happiness, and positive anticipation of the days to come. And the most beautiful gift we pass on is our time and love.

My Christmas greetings to you

I wish you positive and happy moments with your loved ones, lots of laughter and smiles, hugs, and beautiful words and greetings. And for a sweet finish, some special gift that will make you happy from the bottom of your heart. 

Merry Christmas!

    There has been so much isolation and change that we do need to get back to an even track.

    Thank you for sharing your inspirational charismas quotes. I am looking forward to this Christmas very much as this year unlike the rest of past 15 years, I am together with my children and family. I used to work outside all the time during Christmas and my family used to miss me all the time. This year, I am very much excited about it as I am with them.

    Christmas is a season of joys, love, cherish, happiness, forgiveness, gratitude and last but not least sharing and giving. 

    All the best!

      Merry Christmas!

    Hi Nina, 

    Thank you very much for these beautiful Merry Christmas quotes. Lots of people will enjoy reading them, especially with the coronavirus today. They are very inspiring and gives strength. This has nothing to do with the article, sorry. I’ve seen all your videos with the quotes, and I really enjoyed them. I am just curious, do you also sell books? If so, can you redirect me to the page, please?

    Thank you so much, and happy Marry Christmas.

      Thanks for the kind comment. I’m so glad you saw videos with the quotes as well. No, I don’t sell books, but I’m thinking of putting together an e-book with daily quotes for the whole year, following the pattern of the videos.

      I wish you a Merry Christmas,

    Hi Nina,
    Lovely quotes on Christmas, and very timely too. I was just looking for something special to add on a virtual greeting card, and found some really good ones here.

    Hi Nina,

    “At Christmas, all roads lead home.”

    Need I say more:)

    But I will haha – I’m not sure why I picked this one, why it sticks out among all the others. Perhaps it because it’s short, or maybe it’s because it contains the words Xmas and home. It just ticks all the boxes for me – making me think of past pleasant and not so pleasant xmas, my family and the Home Alone movies lol.

    Thanks for coming up with these quotes Nina.

      Yes, this one is short and warm, thanks for sharing your thoughts.
      I wish you a pleasant Xmas this year, Merry Christmas!

    Hi Nina. Beautiful Christmas quotes you selected there. I really like #6: “Nothing ever seems too bad, too hard, or too sad when you’ve got a Christmas tree in the living room.” – Especially since we have put our tree up just yesterday. Very lovely! Which one is your favorite?

    • Nina Reply

      Thank you, Chris! I love this one by Eva K. Logue “A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away; While quite unselfish, it grows small.”
      It’s nice that you already have a Christmas tree, we usually make it on December 24th.
      Merry Christmas!
