"It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
It came without packages, boxes or bags!
 Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
'Maybe Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more.'" 

Theodore Seuss Geisel (aka, Dr. Seuss)
