The earth has grown old with its burden of care, but at Christmas it always is young. ~Phillips Brooks~ (Click to Tweet)

The worst gift is a fruitcake.  There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other.  ~Johnny Carson~ (Click to Tweet)

Photo Backstory: This week I thought I’d gather some Christmas quotes and share the little Christmas corner of my classroom & my holiday bookshelves. One of my students, a boyscout, made the green wreath. It smells heavenly! And the crazy singing stocking is one that I hung in my mom’s nursing home room last year for her last Christmas. It never failed to make her smile!

Have you begun decorating, friends? What’s your most precious ornament?

  16. LOL. Love the Johnny Carson quote. It cracks me up. I’m a music teacher and there used to be a Fruitcake song my kids would sing in school about that–one fruitcake that everyone would pass around until it came back to the first person. It was hysterical. Made me laugh.  I’d  love to have you link this to Titus 2 Tuesday this week on Cornerstone Confessions.. I hope to see you there.
