I love quotes and thought it would be fun to do a blog about Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, and Christmas quotes. There are more holidays in December, but I focused on these three holidays.
Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, and Christmas Quotes
May the following quotes bring you much peace and joy this holiday season!
May the lights of Hanukkah usher in a better world for all humankind. ~ Anonymous
Hanukkah is about the spark of the divine in all of us made in God’s image. ~ Suzanne Fields
The proper response, as Hanukkah teaches, is not to curse the darkness but to light a candle. ~ Irving Greenberg
At this time of year, when the sun is most hidden, the holiday of Hanukkah celebrates the rays of hope and light. Often, it is through simple and unrecognized miracles that we are able to feel the warmth of hope and light. ~ Rafael Goldstein
Winter Solstice Quotes
This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath. ~ Margaret Atwood
The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and retreat that produces something impossibly joyful. floating, like a monarch butterfly skillfully detaching itself from its cocoon, unfurling into unexpected glories. ~ Gary Zukav
Today we celebrate light and honor the wisdom of the shadows. In connecting with the natural world in a way that honors the sacred immanence in all things, we establish a resonance with the seasons. ~ Dacha Avelin
Winter Solstice Blessings
May the longest night and the shortest day
Bring rest to your mind and soul
May you find guidance and may you find peace
As the cycle of light will slowly increase
Embrace the magic that the darkness bears
Breathe deep in the chill
And shift in the air
May you always be blessed with the light from within
And may well-being be yours as the new cycle begins.
Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling. ~Edna Ferber
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year long. ~ Charles Dickens
Peace on earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas every day. ~ Helen Steiner Rice
What is Christmas? It is the tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. ~ Agnes M. Pharo
