Part of living in such a large and diverse country means that the holidays mean something different to almost everyone you know. Whether you celebrate a different one, Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, or the solstice, or whether your family doesn’t celebrate them or has elaborate traditions, our experiences are all different.
However in my opinion, what this time of year ultimately comes down to is love. A way to spend time with your families and loved ones, a way to celebrate them being in our lives, a way to be thankful for all that we have.
So here are some of my favorite quotes about the holidays to get us all ready for this weekend!
“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,
“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
― Bob Hope
May the lights of Hanukkah usher in a better world for all humankind. ~Author Unknown
The darkness of the whole world cannot swallow the glowing of a candle. ~Robert Altinger
To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.
~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
“Kwanzaa is a special time to remember the ancestors, the bridge builders and the leaders.”
— Dorothy Winbush Riley
“The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing others’ loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of the holidays.” – W. C. Jones
“May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter, and every window open to great possibility.” – Mary Anne Radmacher
