Christmas Book Quotes


Merry Christmas! I hope you're having a wonderful day! I thought I'd finish up my Blogmas posts with a few Christmassy book quotes which I really like. I hope you've enjoyed the last 12 days of posts, and be sure to catch up if you've missed any!


“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!”

-Dr Seuss, How The Grinch Stole Christmas


“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”
 
- Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol


"It was the beginning of the greatest Christmas ever. Little food. No presents. But there was a snowman in their basement."

-Martin Zusak, The Book Thief


"Fine old Christmas, with the snowy hair and ruddy face, had done his duty that year in the noblest fashion, and had set off his rich gifts of warmth and colour with all the heightening contrast of frost and snow."

-George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss


“I sincerely hope your Christmas in Hertfordshire may abound in the gaieties which that season generally brings, and that your beaux will be so numerous as to prevent your feeling the loss of the three of whom we shall deprive you.”

- Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Have a wonderful day, and I'll be back with the usual Wednesday and Sunday posts soon!

  1. I read How The Grinch Stole Christmas with my toddler son this year, and the quote you've shared came away from our reading experience. One of my favourite Christmas quotes.

    Love the idea behind this post.
