No matter which year-end set of holidays you celebrate (or none at all), the fact that most people take some time off during this last couple of weeks of December slows the pace of commerce (at least once Christmas is done), and creates an opportunity to reflect on your life.
So, in support of your relaxation and reflection, and your enjoyment of the people and pursuits you love most, here are some wonderful quotes from a wide variety of folks about this holiday season:
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Wishing you happiness." - Helen Keller
"This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!" - D.M. Dellinger
"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love." - Hamilton Wright Mabie
"Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters somehow. I have a place in the pattern, and so do you. Thinking of you this holiday season!" - T.A. Barron
"As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same." - Donald E. Westlake
