The Last Quotes: #5 and #6
As you digest your Xmas ham and sugar cookies (or your mince pies and "turpigen" as pictured here), I'd like to share with you the last two quotes:
"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air." - Ellis
If you ever have the opportunity to see Patrick Stewart perform A Christmas Carol, his one-man retelling of the classic story, TAKE IT! Drive anywhere and pay anything to see him perform that show. From the moment it starts, you totally forget you are watching one man on an almost empty stage. You are transported to Victorian England and can see every character and every detail through his portrayal. You can rent the film version that was released on TNT and is now on DVD, but it isn't the quite as perfect as watching him do it on stage. So, my final Xmas quote comes from that story...
"I will honour Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year." - Dickens
(By the way, if you don't know what "turpigen" is, look it up! You can also induldge in "turducken" if the mood strikes you...you've got to love the English.)
