THE REASON FOR CHRISTMAS

“This joyful season brings to all of us a measure of happiness that corresponds to the degree to which we have turned our minds, feelings, and actions to the Savior, whose birth we celebrate.”     –Thomas S. Monson, “A Bright Shining Star”, 2010 First Presidency Christmas Devotional

“Christmas is what we make of it. Despite all of the distractions, we can see to it that Christ is at the center of our celebration. If we have not already done so, we can establish Christmas traditions for ourselves and for our families which will help us capture and keep the spirit of Christmas.” –Thomas S. Monson, “Because He Came”, 2011 First Presidency Christmas Devotional

“Because He came to earth, we have a perfect example to follow. As we strive to become more like Him, we will have joy and happiness in our lives and peace each day of the year. It is His example which, if followed, stirs within us more kindness and love, more respect and concern for others.” –Thomas S. Monson, “Because He Came”, 2011 First Presidency Christmas Devotional

 

I hope each and every one of you have a Merry Christmas surrounded by family and friends celebrating our Savior’s birth and the happiness that can be found in His gospel.
