Selected popular Christmas quotes to inspire you
Christmas is celebrated throughout the Christian population across the globe on December 25, but it is also celebrated by many non-Christians as a secular and a cultural festival.

The holiday is almost celebrated around the world. The word Christmas originated as a compound meaning "Christ's Mass" commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ by billions of people around the world.

Christmas Day is a public holiday in India and on this day the Nativity scene representing the birth of Jesus is created in Churches, public places and homes.

Many Christians mark festival by attending special church services, spending time with family members, wearing new clothes; eating a festive meal; exchanging gifts; and giving presents or sweets to children.

Here are a few thoughts selected from the internet to ponder about this auspicious day:

"Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart." - Washington Irving

"Christmas is not in tinsel and lights and outward show. The secret lies in an inner glow. It's lighting a fire inside the heart. Good will and joy a vital part. It's higher thought and a greater plan. It's glorious dream in the soul of man." - Wilfred A. Peterson

"There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas; there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas." - Robert Lynd

"Let Christmas not become a thing merely of merchant's trafficking, of tinsel, bell and holly wreath and surface pleasure, but beneath The childish glamour, let us find Nourishment for heart and mind. Let us follow kinder ways through our teeming human maze, and help the age of peace to come." - Madeline Morse

"Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas." - Calvin Coolidge

"As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is."  - Eric Sevareid

"A Christmas candle is a lovely thing. It makes no noise at all, but softly gives itself away; while quite unselfish, it grows small." - Eva K Logue
