Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

Christmas you know is that one special season,

When people do good things without a good reason.

The grouchiest men will wear musical ties,

And buy Christmas presents for folks they despise.


The cheapest of cheapskates will spend all his money.

And people make fruitcakes from concrete and honey.

           --Mike Reiss, How Murray Saved Christmas (Price Stern Sloan, 2000)
