Christmas from Authors

"If my Valentine you won't be,
I'll hang myself on your Christmas tree."
~Ernest Hemingway, 88 Poems
"The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood."
~Richard Paul Evans, The Christmas Box
"Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone."
~Charles Schulz, Peanuts
'This whole Santa Claus thing just doesn't make sense. Why all the secrecy? Why all the mystery?
If the guy exists why doesn't he ever show himself and prove it?
And if he doesn't exist what's the meaning of all this?'
'I dunno. Isn't this a religious holiday?'
'Yeah, but actually, I've got the same questions about God.'” 
~Bill Watterson, Calvin & Hobbes
“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!”
~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
“The Christmas tree is a symbol of love, not money. There's a kind of glory to them when they're all lit up that exceeds anything all the money in the world could buy.” 
~Andy Rooney, Andy Rooney: 60 Years of Wisdom and Wit
 “There are some wonderful aspects to Christmas. It's magical. And each year, from at least November, well, September, well, if I'm honest, May, I look forward to it hugely.”
~Miranda Hart, Is it Just Me?
