Calvin Coolidge’s Christmas Message 1927

To the American People: —

Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

If we think of these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world.

—Calvin Coolidge
