Christmas isn’t a season.  It’s a feeling.

Edna Ferber

December 22nd - Christmas in the heart

He who has not Christmas in his heart, will never find it under a tree

Roy L. Smith 

The Christmas heart is full of love, caring and sharing, generous and affectionate.  It’s truly Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in air.  Christmas is a time to open your heart with love and your life with laughter.  True giving from the heart is a expression love .  There are times when our hands are empty but our heart are always full of love.

You can give without loving, but you can’t love without giving.  Sharing goodwill this season is what Christmas is all about.  
It’s the magical time of year when miracles happen.  The way to increase the Christmas spirit is to reach out generously to others.  

Christmas is supposed to be forever, not just one day. For loving, sharing and giving are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.  Remember the good you do for others is good you do yourself.  The Christmas story is one of the greatest love stories ever told.  Love came down at Christmas bring peace and goodwill to all men.

This is going to be a different kind of Christmas for most of us, but one thing never changes and that is love. Love never fails and never gives up.  

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. 

Charles Dickens

As I read through this entry this sentence kept coming back when you said:
You can give without loving, but you can’t love without giving.
That is such a truth, and it is sad that some giving is out of obligation, but not the heart.........

You done good.

I think, then, that Christmas isn't necessarily a date but a feeling in one's heart.

I agree Christmas is not just one day but should last a lifetime. I also think people should remember that the Babe that was born on Christmas Day got older and redeemed us :)
