“A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us.” Which all the family re-echoed. “God bless us every one.” […] [H]e knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!
– Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”
