Springtime of the Spirit


realize that Christmas is a pause.
The word is beautiful and the idea
behind it more beautiful.
Christmas is not just for children.
To believe that it is to believe that innocence
without knowledge is better than
understanding and faith and grace.
To be clever about Christmas
is to be profoundly stupid.
The early springtime of the spirit,
Christmas is renewal and joy.*

*from Vogue dec 1965, author unknown.
