Christmas Comes From the Heart

“Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought,
doesn’t come from a store.”
Dr Seuss

Ah, the Grinch.  A fictional character, with a more than grumpy attitude, is opposed to anything and everything related to Christmas time festivities.


If you don’t know the story “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”, this furry and grumpy recluse decided to rob Who-ville of their every holiday treat in order to stop Christmas.  However, he learns that those from Who-ville are thankful even without gifts.

You know, Christmas is not just about gifts that come from a store – Christmas is about gifts that come from the heart.  Christmas is about giving to and caring for others.  Those who enjoy Christmas have an aura about them – warm and glowing.

Christmas is a glorious and wondrous time of the year.  It is a time to be thankful and spread goodwill and cheer.  Our gifts to those we love are selected with care; they are wrapped to perfection; they are adorned with our special touches in order for us to reflect expressions of our adoration for one another.


Gifts may be purchased from a store, but they come from the heart.  Christmas doesn’t come from a store, it comes from the heart.  Like the Whos, from Whoville, we can be thankful even without gifts.  The Grinch can’t steal our Christmas if it is in our heart.

 A perfect quote for the Holiday season from

  1. You are so right Christmas is a heart thing. I am sometimes bothered by the commercialism of the season. I have worked in retail most of my working years and stores bank on Christmas sales to make…or save their year and the hype always bothers me. Still it is a wonderful time when we do remember to give from the heart. Thank you for sharing with In Other Words.
