Quotes:
25: Were I a philosopher, I should write a philosophy of toys, showing that nothing else in life need to be taken seriously, and that Christmas Day in the company of children is one of the few occasions on which men become entirely alive. -Robert Lynd

24: When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things-not the great occasions-give off the greatest glow of happiness. -Bob Hope

23: A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.-Garrison Keillor

22: I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. -Harlan Miller

21: Christmas is the season for kindling the fires of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart. -Washington Irving

20: Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given-when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we has as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.-Joan Winmill Brown

19: My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?-Bob Hope

18: There's nothing sadder in the world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child. -Erma Bombeck

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.-Peg Bracken

I wanted to post photos of what I sent Jackie K.

The advent calendar, which had a crochet pattern and a chocolate in each pocket:


12 of the days had a pair of christmas ornaments:


There were two necklaces, and a brooch:




Placemats and coasters:


An angel ornament:


Then no photos of the rest...some days had bars of lindt chocolate with recipes, some days had craft kits (a quilting kit I put together, a painting kit I put together, and 2 bought Christmas craft foam kits).  I think that was it!
