We are all getting ready for Christmas around here. I think these thoughts from Dickens express why I still like this time of year, even though it is hectic with planning, decorating, traveling, shopping and parties:

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens
