In honor of the holiday season, here are some quotes from the writings of notable women.

In these selections you'll find everything from a vision of a golden-haired, white garbed Virgin Mary, to a humorous lament from a 20th century homemaker, to a 19th century Christmas without presents, to a woman historian's story of the Puritan approach to Christmas (work, work, work!).
