Have you seen the Leon’s ads about what kids have to say about different Christmas themes? If you like listening to cute little children with lisps mispronouncing words while talking about Santa and his Elves, and really, who doesn’t, then you have to keep an eye out for them. They are so cute.
Kids aren’t the only ones who say the darndest things when it comes to the theme of Christmas. Please enjoy the following quotations regarding the Happy Holidays.
There has been only one Christmas -- the rest are anniversaries. ~W. J. Cameron.
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.

I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included.” ~Bernard Manning.
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.” ~Harlan Miller.
Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year.” ~Victor Borge.
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukka' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukka!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!' ~Dave Barry.
Christmas is a race to see which gives out first - your money or your feet.~
Christmas is a time when everybody wants his past forgotten and his present remembered. ~Phyllis Diller.
There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.~Erma Bombeck.
Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit. ~Kin Hubbard.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their lock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. ~LUKE 2:8-14.~ After reciting the above verses in a scene from “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, Linus then tells Charlie, “That’s the meaning of Christmas, Charlie Brown.”
