“Christmas is not as much about opening presents, as opening our hearts”

"Christmas is not as much about opening presents, as opening our hearts” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2007, when it was credited to Janice Maeditere (although biographical details are unknown).
