To get you in the festive spirit, we’ve compiled a couple of our favourite Christmas quotes from classic and modern tales. 

 

The Pickwick Papers

 

“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!”

The Pickwick Papers – Charles Dickens

 

 

The Polysyllabic Spree

 

 

“Hey, great idea: if you have kids, give your partner reading vouchers next Christmas. Each voucher entitles the bearer to two hours’ reading time *while the kids are awake*. It might look like a cheapskate present, but parents will appreciate that it costs more in real terms than a Lamborghini.”

The Complete Polysyllabic Spree – Nick Hornby

 

 

Little Women

 

“The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.”

Little Women – Louisa May Alcott

 

 

 

LET IT SNOW

 

 “Christmas is a state of mind.”

Let it Snow – Lauren Myracle

 

 

 

 

 

Emma 

“This is quite the season indeed for friendly meetings. At Christmas every body invites their friends about them, and people think little of even the worst weather. I was snowed up at a friend’s house once for a week. Nothing could be pleasanter. I went for only one night, and could not get away till that very day se’nnight.”

Emma – Jane Austen
