Quote of the Day: Francis C. Farley

December 25th, 2011

“Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself.”

~Francis C. Farley

Merry Christmas from Chiot’s Run

    I love that nativity. My mom has a whole bunch of those figures, and I’ve always loved them.

    Got your Christmas postcard yesterday, by the way. Thank you!! It’s beautiful. :) Merry Christmas to you and your family, Susy. Happy New Year!!
