The Lyons Den Holiday Card

Happy Holidays from the Lyons Den to our readers. We are appreciative this season for your love & support!

Here are a few of our favorite Holiday quotes to keep in mind these next few days…

 

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.” -Mary Ellen Chase

 

“Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” – Oren Arnold

And of course,

“If a woman says she doesn’t want a present for Christmas, what she really means is : I want a present, and it make sure its jewelry”
