  • And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
    stood puzzling and puzzling, How could it be so?
    It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
    It came without packages, boxes or bags.
    And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
    Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
    What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
    What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. - Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas

  • The older I get: the longer I hold on to a Holiday hug
    The more I realize Christmas is a matter of the heart,
    The more I enjoy giving than receiving,
    The more I try to see Christmas through the eyes of a child,
    The longer I sit in the glow of the Christmas Tree light,
    The more wonderfully beautiful the Christmas story is,
    The deeper my awe at God's infinite Love…
    The more I LOVE Christmas.

Tips:

-- Journal your family traditions, ceremonies, favorite (cookie) recipes, Christmas carols, etc. on your holiday pages. Even old traditions that you don't follow anymore but maybe who started them. (Santa called my nieces every Christmas eve to make sure they were in bed.)

-- Using the poem A visit by St. Nick by Clement Moore, commonly known as The Night Before Christmas - break the stanzas apart and illustrate with your family pictures and Christmas cards.

-- Border your Christmas page with symbols (in dye cuts or pictures) of the holiday. (presents, star, garland, gingerbread men, holly and berries, ivy, wreath, toys, snowflake, ornaments, tinsel, jingle bells, Christmas tree, lights, Santa's hat or boot, 3 crowns, babe in the manger, bows, JOY, NOEL, pine trees w/snow)
