"There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries." W.J. Cameron.
"I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included." Bernard Manning.

"Mail your packages early so the post office can lose them in time for Christmas." Johnny Carson.
"Oh look, yet another Christmas TV special! How touching to have the meaning of Christmas brought to us by cola, fast food, and beer.... Who'd have ever guessed that product consumption, popular entertainment, and spirituality would mix so harmoniously?" Bill Watterson.
"Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit." Kin Hubbard.
"Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space." Dave Barry.
"From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it." Katharine Whitehorn.
"I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph." Shirley Temple.

"People can't concentrate properly on blowing other people to pieces if their minds are poisoned by thoughts suitable to the twenty-fifth of December." Ogden Nash.
"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'" Dave Barry.
