r own business. You can serve your community by offering a great product and possibly even hiring employees. Buy your food from local vendors. Try to get most of your produce from the farmers market, where members of your community go to sell food theyve worked hard to grow.Shop at local businesses whenever you can. For example, if you have the choice to buy a new pair of jeans at a chain discount store or a small business owned by a member of your community, choose the latter. Change your mindset from buying the cheapest available product to leveraging your purchases to provide the most community good. Knowing that your money will go toward boosting your local economy and building a strong, vibrant community is worth the extra effort and expense. Help others to see the light and help them come aboard to help you boost the local communitys financial health.Consider starting your own business. You can serve your community by offering a great product and possibly even hiring employees.Recycle and compost.
Many communities are experiencing problems with landfills that are getting too full. Producing too much trash pollutes the environment, and thats not good for your communitys long-term health. You can do your part to help improve the situation by recycling and composting as much of your waste as possible. If you want to go above and beyond, you could also spread awareness about how to recycle, or start a recycling program at your school or place of work.Composting is useful in more ways than one. It allows you to dispose of your food waste without putting it in the trash, and as a result you end up with rich soil you can use in your garden. Once you learn how to do it, show others how easy it can be.Save energy and water.
Using excessive electricity and water strains community resources. Saving energy and water is good for the planet as well as your local environment. Do your best to conserve energy and water and it will become an investment in your communitys long-term health. Turning off your lights when youre not using them, using energy-saving appliances, decreasing your reliance on air conditioning, turning down the temperature on your water heater, and unplugging your computer when you power it down are all ways you can help save energy.Taking shorter showers, making sure your pipes arent leaking, limiting your lawn watering, and using a low-water method of washing dishes are all ways you can help save water.Be less reliant on your car.
Communities that rely heavily on car transportation often experience elevated air pollution levels. Air pollution is not only detrimental to plants and animals, it causes major health problems for humans, too. Using your car less often decreases your carbon footprint, which helps your community. Here are alternatives to try: Walk or bike where you need to go. It takes a little longer, but you see more along the way.Use public transportation. Even if your area doesnt have a great subway or elevated rail system, you probably have bus lines nearby.Carpool to work or school, instead of driving places by yourself. en

99 Funny Christmas Quotes To Keep You Laughing Until The New Year
Christmas is stressful. From shopping for the perfect gifts to cooking a feast for the family, it’s surprising that people actually look forward to the holiday hustle and bustle.
To help you get through the stress of holiday season, check out these 99 funny Christmas quotes to keep you jolly through the season…
“Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people only once a year.”
“My husband’s idea of getting the Christmas spirit is to become Scrooge.”
“Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.”
“Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and receipts for all major purchases.”
“I haven’t taken my Christmas lights down. They look so nice on the pumpkin.”
“This holiday season, no matter what your religion is, please take a moment to reflect on why it’s better than all the other ones.”
“The principal advantage of the non-parental lifestyle is that on Christmas Eve you need not be struck dumb by the three most terrifying words that the government allows to be printed on any product: “Some assembly required.””
“Nothing’s as mean as giving a little child something useful for Christmas.”
“What I like about Christmas is that you can make people forget the past with the present.”
“I hate the radio this time of year because they play “All I Want For Christmas Is You” like, every other song. And that’s just not enough.”
“Adults can take a simple holiday for Children and screw it up. What began as a presentation of simple gifts to delight and surprise children around the Christmas tree has culminated in a woman unwrapping six shrimp forks from her dog, who drew her name.”
“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.”
“I love Christmas. I receive a lot of wonderful presents I can’t wait to exchange.”
“That’s the true spirit of Christmas; people being helped by people other than me.”
“Do give books – religious or otherwise – for Christmas. They’re never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.”
“For Christmas this year, try giving less. Start with less attitude. There’s more than enough of that in the world as it is – and people will usually just give it back anyway!”
“I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph.”
“Aren’t we forgetting the true meaning of Christmas. You know, the birth of Santa?”
“Let me see if I’ve got this Santa business straight. You say he wears a beard, has no discernible source of income and flies to cities all over the world under cover of darkness? You sure this guy isn’t laundering illegal drug money?”
“Who’s the bane of Santa’s life? The elf and safety officer.”
“Santa Claus wears a Red Suit, he must be a communist. And a beard and long hair, must be a pacifist. What’s in that pipe that he’s smoking?”
“Christmas is a time when kids tell Santa what they want and adults pay for it. Deficits are when adults tell the government what they want and their kids pay for it.”
“Did you ever notice that life seems to follow certain patterns? Like I noticed that every year around this time, I hear Christmas music.”
“The one thing women don’t want to find in their stockings on Christmas morning is their husband.”
“Many banks have a new kind of Christmas club in operation. The new club helps you save money to pay for last year’s gifts.”
“I bought my brother some gift wrap for Christmas. I took it to the gift wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping.”
“Be careful with drinking this Christmas. I got so drunk last night I found myself dancing in a cheesy bar… or, as you like to call it, delicatessen.”
“Christmas, here again. Let us raise a loving cup; Peace on earth, goodwill to men, and make them do the washing up.”
“Although it is pleasant to think about poison at any season, there is something special about Christmas, and I found myself grinning.”
“Christmas is the season when you buy this year’s gifts with next year’s money.”
“He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”
“People can’t concentrate properly on blowing other people to pieces properly if their minds are poisoned by thoughts suitable to the twenty-fifth of December.”
“A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.”
“I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.”
“‘Elf’ has become this big holiday movie, and I remember running around the streets of New York in tights saying, ‘This could be the last movie I ever make,’ and I could never have predicted that it’d become such a popular film.”
“Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space.”
“Next to a circus there ain’t nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit.”
“As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December’s bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.”
“Oh, for the good old days when people would stop Christmas shopping when they ran out of money.”
“A Christmas shopper’s complaint is one of long-standing.”
“The magi, as you know, were wise men — wonderfully wise men who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger. They invented the art of giving Christmas presents.”
“Wretched excess is an unfortunate human trait that turns a perfectly good idea such as Christmas into a frenzy of last-minute shopping.”
“Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.”
“Three phrases that sum up Christmas are: Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men, and Batteries not Included.”
“Christmas and the New Year are actually two holidays. So there is a plural, which in the English language, necessitates the use of ‘s.’ I suppose you could say ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Happy New Year,’ but you probably have sh*t to do.”
“I left Santa gluten-free cookies and organic soy milk and he put a solar panel in my stocking.”
“The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn’t for any religious reasons. They couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin.”
“Ever wonder what people got Jesus for Christmas? It’s like, “Oh great, socks. You know I’m dying for your sins right? Yeah, but thanks for the socks! They’ll go great with my sandals. What am I, German?”
“Every year, Christmas gets longer and longer, and you don’t care, do you? Every year, you just take more of the calendar for yourself. How long does it take you people to shop? It’s beyond belief! It’s insane! When I was a kid, Halloween was Halloween, and Santa wasn’t poking his ass into it!”
“This past Christmas, I told my girlfriend for months in advance that all I wanted was an Xbox. That’s it. Beginning and end of list, Xbox. You know what she got me? A homemade frame with a picture of us from our first date together. Which was fine. Because I got her an Xbox.”
“I’ve had this look for about a year. I usually grow this beard out around Christmas. I like to go to malls dressed as Jesus, and I like to then walk around the mall and go, ‘No! No! This wasn’t what it was supposed to be about, people!’ Then if there’s a Santa at the mall, I walk up to him and say, ‘Listen, fat man, you’re just a clown at my birthday party.’”
“I set a personal record on Christmas. I got my shopping done three weeks ahead of time. I had all the presents back at my apartment, I was halfway through wrapping them, and I realized, ‘Damn, I used the wrong wrapping paper.’ The paper I used said, ‘Happy Birthday.’ I didn’t want to waste it, so I just wrote ‘Jesus’ on it.”
“If you can’t wrap Christmas presents well, at least make it look like they put up a good fight.”
“Christmas: it’s the only religious holiday that’s also a federal holiday. That way, Christians can go to their services, and everyone else can sit at home and reflect on the true meaning of the separation of church and state.”
“People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.”
“Mentally I am ready for Christmas, financially I am not ready for Christmas.”
“Christmas is a magical time of year… I just watched all my money magically disappear.”
“Even before Christmas has said Hello, it’s saying ‘Buy Buy’.”
“Sending Christmas cards is a good way to let your friends and family know that you think they’re worth the price of a stamp.”
“Christmas Shopping: Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find one gift that you didn’t have to dust, that had to be used right away, that was practical, fit everyone, was personal and would be remembered for a long time? I penciled in “Gift certificate for a flu shot.”
“Anyone who believes that men are the equal of women has never seen a man trying to wrap a Christmas present.”
“The outdoor Christmas lights, green and red and gold and blue and twinkling, remind me that most people are that way all year round — kind, generous, friendly and with an occasional moment of ecstasy. But Christmas is the only time they dare reveal themselves.”
“There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas; there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas.”
“I get a little behind during Lent, but it comes out even at Christmas.”
“My mother-in-law has come round to our house at Christmas seven years running. This year we’re having a change. We’re going to let her in.”
“Bloody Christmas, here again, let us raise a loving cup, peace on earth, goodwill to men, and make them do the washing up.”
“Most of the soap operas always use the Christmas special to kill huge quantities of their characters. So they have trams coming off their rails, or cars slamming into each other or burning buildings. It’s a general clean-out.”
“Christmas to a child is the first terrible proof that to travel hopefully is better than to arrive.”
“It may be a cliche, but it’s true – the build-up to Christmas is so much more pleasurable than the actual day itself.”
“The best Christmas present I got from my husband was a week to do whatever I wanted.”
“Oh look, yet another Christmas TV special! How touching to have the meaning of Christmas brought to us by cola, fast food, and beer… Who’d have ever guessed that product consumption, popular entertainment, and spirituality would mix so harmoniously?”
“From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.”
“I hate Christmas. The mall is full of nothing but women and children. All you hear is, ‘I want this,’ ‘Get me this,’ ‘I have to have this’… and then there’s the children. And they’re all by my store ’cause they stuck the mall Santa right outside ringing his stupid bell. As if you need a bell to notice a 300-pound alcoholic in a red suit. ‘Ho, ho, ho,’ all day long. So, nice as can be, I go outside, ask him to shut the hell up. He takes a swing at me. So I lay a hook into his fat belly and he goes down. Beard comes off, all the kids start crying and I’m the bad guy.”
“One can never have enough socks. Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.”

60 Magical Harry Potter Quotes

On 26 June 1997, an unknown Scottish author named Joanne Rowling released her first novel.
Just 500 copies of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone were printed, but it was the beginning of a worldwide phenomenon that would fascinate both children and adults for decades.
Today, seven books and eight movies later, Rowling’s magical world continues to inspire and encourage new generations of Harry Potter lovers.
What was once a figment of an author’s imagination has become a series of novels, eight box-office hit movies, and a number of major attractions (you can go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in America, Japan, Europe and beyond). It has amassed a cult following of loyal “muggles” (non-magic folk) both online and in real life.
Separately, the novels and the movies have grossed over $7.7 billion each, making J.K. Rowling one of the richest and most successful authors of all time.
From Hogwarts to Hogsmeade, Platform 9 and 3/4 and The Burrow, Rowling has created a world that is wonderful and engaging because it meshes so well with our own. It’s as easy to comprehend the existence of a hidden platform at London Kings Cross station as it is an ancient magical village in the wild and windswept highlands of Scotland.
Whether it’s the thrill of shopping for school supplies in Diagon Alley, boarding the Hogwarts Express, or attending a potions class, Rowling brings us into the world of Harry Potter and makes us feel like we belong.
The trials and lessons faced by Harry Potter and his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, challenge us and force us to contemplate the big questions about life, love, friendship, loyalty, destiny, and even death. So whether your love of Harry Potter comes from reading the books, seeing the movies, or a bit of both, we’ve put together a list of the best and most magical quotes from the series.
“Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.”
“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
“But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
“There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don’t expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few who possess the predisposition, I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death. Then again, maybe some of you have come to Hogwarts in possession of abilities so formidable that you feel confident enough to not pay attention!”
“Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn’t mean we all have.”
“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love. “
“It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more. “
“You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? “
“It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew — and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents — that there was all the difference in the world.”
“We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”
“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.”
“I solemnly swear I am up to no good.”
“I am what I am, an’ I’m not ashamed. ‘Never be ashamed,’ my ol’ dad used ter say, ‘there’s some who’ll hold it against you, but they’re not worth botherin’ with.’”
“Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.’”
“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”
“I think we’ve outgrown full-time education … Time to test our talents in the real world, d’you reckon?”
“Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.”
“For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own.”
“‘He must have known I’d run out on you.’ ‘No,’ Harry corrected him. ‘He must’ve always known you’d always want to come back.’”
“And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”
