Words of Wisdom from Elmsworth

Elmsworth is the main character and leader of the menagerie of ornaments in So This is Christmas . With so many Christmases under his belt, he has become a sort of mentor and sage for all the other ornaments. Of course, this leads to a few words of wisdom throughout the book. I thought I would share a few of them with you today.

“Make decisions with Christmas spirit in mind. Trust me. You’ll have a much happier Christmas—and life.” - Elmsworth.

“Christmas spirit is about bringing those feelings of love out in the open. You show it by giving and helping others. If I had my way, Christmas would be every day.” - Elmsworth.

"… those thrilling, wonderful, odd, distracting sensations that you get when you listen to a Christmas carol or watch a corny Christmas movie. You don’t realize it, but that is love making its way to the surface" - Elmsworth.

You know, he was a really smart guy. Feel free to share these quotes and help spread Christmas Cheer!
