25 Joyful Christmas Quotes to Boost Your Holiday Spirit

It’s almost cliché to say that the Christmas SPIRIT is something to keep in your heart year round. Nonetheless, it bears repeating.

The JOYOUS feeling that Christmas is supposed to bring is a feeling that can and should be summoned on any day of the year.  

More importantly, the meaning of Christmas is that KINDNESS should be shared with people of ALL FAITHS or non-faiths, without expectation or judgement, all the time.  We are ALL God’s children.

As we gear up for the holiday, making our lists and checking them twice, let’s be mindful of the original meaning of the holiday, and spread cheer and good will towards not just our family and friends, but also towards those who may find this a stressful or lonely time.
