Top Christmas Postings on Twitter and Facebook

Top Christmas Postings on Twitter and Facebook

As I was reading my friends and acquaintances postings from Christmas day on Facebook and Twitter, I thought it would be nice to compile together some of the inspirational ones that would be nice to have around for a rainy day. I hope you all enjoy! I'd love it if you would share with me some of your favorite holiday excerpts, quotes, etc.

"Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus" short story that is from the New York Times. http://beebo.org/smackerels/yes-virginia.html

There is a single ladies version of this poem that is quite clever. http://thedailylove.com/yes-single-women-there-is-a-santa-clause/

Christmas waves a magical wand over the world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. - Norman Vincent Peale

Nothings perfect. This holiday things will turn out best for those who make the best out of the way things turn out.

Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemies, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

Today: I will count not the presents under the tree, but all the blessings God has given me.

Today: I will wish all those I've ever loved good cheer, then release the old and look ahead to a new year!

A positive attitude is life's magical wand. When you shine, you leave miracles behind.

Funny: Santa is a very jolly because he knows where all the bad girls live - Dennis Miller

Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy. We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience. - Handel H. Brow

At the end of the day, the real joy in life isn't found in presents but in each other's presence.

Christmas Day is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves. - Eric Sevareid

Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself. - Norman Wesley Brooks

Christmas – that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance – a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. - Augusta E. Rundel


“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 'til his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” ~Dr. Seuss


Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you ... to remember the weakness and loneliness of people who are growing old ... Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest ting in the world ... stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death... Then you can keep Christmas! But you can never keep it alone. -Henry van Dyke

Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind; Teach us to be patient and always to be kind. - Helen Steiner Rice
