Frank Butler


I got a guitar when I was about 14, for a Christmas present, and went from there.

Jose Mourinho


I was thrilled one year when I was younger when not only did my brothers get hockey sticks for Christmas - but I did too!

Jim Carrey


My mother would give my brothers and me a pile of catalogues and let us pick what we wanted for Christmas.
Kary Mullis


My mother, she had a very good attitude toward money. I'm very grateful for the fact that we had to learn to save. I used to get like 50 pence a week, and I'd save it for like five months. And then I'd spend it on Christmas presents. I'd save up like eight pounds. It's nothing, but we did that.

Gilbert K. Chesterton


Windows are as essential to office prestige as Christmas is to retailing.
Enid Nemy


With the song 'This Christmas' I wanted to do something that was kind of different. I mean, Donny Hathaway is an amazing artist. So I wanted to bring my flavor to the song so when people over the age of 45 or 50 hear it they'll be like 'OK, he did his thing with that record.' It's like I can appeal to everybody and not just a younger demographic.
Chris Brown


Yeah, I started when I was 6 years old. My brother and sister would get all of these presents at Christmas time from the cast and crew of their show and I was jealous. So I decided that I had to become an actor.
