Happy Christmas Eve! I hope you’re all well and ready for the big day tomorrow. Christmas isn’t always a happy time for people. However, I hope everyone finds peace this festive period.
For me, Christmas is a time for family and close friends. The tree is up! The snowman is lighting the way. My dad is making sausage rolls as we speak. The last thing I needed to do is wish my wonderful followers a very Merry Christmas.
Also, I wanted to share 5 of my favourite quotes from a range of books for Christmas. Of course, you may have many of your own.
Firstly, Song of Years by Bess Streeter Aldrich. This one makes me feel quite warm and fuzzy!
“Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself around you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart…filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.”
Next is one from The Book Thief. This book has me in tears, I can’t deny that fact. This quote reminds me of the joy from simple things.
“It was the beginning of the greatest Christmas ever. Little food. No presents. But there was a snowman in their basement.”
I always find Dr Seuss humorous and fairly accurate. I can’t disagree again with his views on Christmas.
“It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. The Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
Clement Clarke Moore is always quoted. I personally love this poem. I read it every Christmas Eve.
”Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.”
My final quote is rather witty and fairly accurate for myself personally. Being as my wrapping paper is covered in it this year as well as last, it seems apt that I leave this till last. Taken from Eloisa James’s Paris in Love.
“I don’t want the Christmas season the end, because it’s the only time I can legitimately indulge in on a particular addiction: glitter.”
I’m feeling so festive and warm inside. That could be the mulled wine talking!
So Merry Christmas my lovelies! I wish you all the very best. Have the most wonderful day. Make some magical memories. Remember those who can’t be sat at our tables this year. Let’s have hearts that are quite full.
Big love xx
