Kwanzachristmakah

Happy Kwanzachristmakah Everyone!

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. 
~ Larry Wilde

You know you're getting older when Santa starts looking younger. ~ Robert Paul

It looks like Santa Paws was here.

Christmas at my house is always at least six or seven times more pleasant than anywhere else. We start drinking early. And while everyone else is seeing only one Santa Claus, we'll be seeing six or seven. 
~ W.C. Fields

I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included.
~ Bernard Manning

Did you ever notice that life seems to follow certain patterns? Like I noticed that every year around this time, I hear Christmas music. ~ Tom Sims





skitty
I bought my brother some gift-wrap for Christmas. I took it to the Gift Wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping. 
~ Stephen Wright

The one thing women don't want to find in their stockings on Christmas morning is their husband. 
~ Joan Rivers

Wishing you all the very best of the holiday season however you may celebrate it.
