Christmas Thoughts

The Women’s Insitutute (WI) published a small book in 2007, Practical Know-how at Christmas. Along with the hints, they included some timeless quotations about the holiday. Here are some of them:

Life is much like Christmas — you are more apt to get what you expect than what you want.  (Anonymous)

The Devil makes his Christmas pie of lawyers’ tongues. (English Proverb)

Q: Why is Christmas just like a day at the office?  A: You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit. (Anonymous)

Heap on the wood — the wind is chill; but let it whistle as it will. We’ll keep our Christmas merry still.  (Sir Walter Scott)
