Chill December brings the sleet, blazing fire, and Christmas treat.
    ~Sara Coleridge~ 

A bare tree stands with roots on both ends in December.
    ~Karen  Bantawa~

When dark December glooms the day, and takes our autumn joys away; when short and scant the sun-beam throws, upon the weary waste of snow.
    ~Walter Scott~

I heard a bird sing in the dark of December, a magical thing and sweet to remember: "We are nearer to spring than we were in September."
      ~Oliver Herford~

Of all the months of the year there is not a month one-half so welcome to the young, or so full of happy associations, as the last month of the year..."All the year around: December," All the year  around a weekly journal conduced by Charles Dickens 1887 December 10th

Wishing everyone a joyous month of December.
