Have you ever seen a picture like this one hanging in someone's home? (Hold up the wall poster.) It is their way of saying that their home is a warm and welcoming place to be. A place where they are happy.
The home has been a favorite subject of authors, poets, and songwriters since the beginning of time. Here are some examples:
Over a hundred fifty years ago, John Howard Payne wrote a song called "Home Sweet Home." The song ends with these words:
Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home,
There's no place like home!

- "There's nothing half so pleasant as coming home again." Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
