Quote: Sylvia Plath Christmas In London the day after Christmas (Boxing Day), it began to snow: my first snow in England.

'Ooo, I do remember snow,' was the usual reply, 'when I were a lad.' Sylvia Plath Christmas

Quote: James McAvoy Christmas At the heart of every really good Christmas movie is the threat, I suppose, to Christmas. Something is wrong with Christmas, in all of these movies. In 'The Polar Express,' there's a kid that doesn't really believe, and that's the threat to Christmas. In 'Santa Claus: The Movie,' jealousy and greed are threatening to overrun his Christmas.
