Christmas Quotes

by - Thursday, December 20, 2018

I didn't originally have this blog post planned for Blogmas at all, but I was inspired by the lovely Ruth of Ruth In Revolt. She shared 8 festive quotes of the season which you can (& should) read here! I downloaded a Countdown to Christmas app right after Thanksgiving, and I love it because not only does it have the days, hours, minutes, and seconds to Christmas Day, but it also provides a quote each day. I've selected ten of my favourites thus far; enjoy!
