  • There is one more good thing about Winter—he brings Christmas. Through the bleak December, the thought of the coming festival is pleasant—like the reflection of a fire on our faces….

And to make Christmas perfect, the ground should be covered and the trees draped with snow; the bleak world outside should make us enjoy all the more keenly the comforts we possess; and above all, it should make us remember the poor and the needy; for a charitable deed is the best close of any chapter of our lives, and the best promise, too, for the record about to be begun. ~Alexander Smith, “Winter,” 1863
