Daily Ideas From Your Ancestors For Christmas - 19 - Write Mottoes On Your Walls!

Pay Your Compliments To The Season!

‘The following are some well-seasoned Christmas mottoes: “Right happy may your Christmas be.” “Of Christmas joys be thine an ample part.”  “Christmas mirth and Christmas fare, and friends by dozen both to share.” “A happy Christmas-tide.” “Mirth and music, songs and glees, in your home this Christmas be.” “May Christmas-tide its joys afford, bright glasses sparkle on your board.”’
