The True Meaning of Christmas

It is SO easy to forget what the Christmas season is all about. I tend to get caught up with my to-do lists, shopping that need to be completed, cookies that need to be baked, cards that need to be sent, events that need to be attended and all the hustle and bustle that consumes the month of December. We sometimes just need to SLOW down and remember what we are really celebrating. And that is the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. I love this little movie put out by our church- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 

It's a perfect little clip to help us remember what Christmas is all about. Some of the ways that I've been trying to feel the reverence of the Christmas season are:

1. Watching Music and the Spoken Word- December episodes (they just feature Christmas music sung by the Mormon tabernacle choir)

2. Reading stories out of the December issue of the church magazine- The Ensign

3. Reading Christmas Story books to my son Chase.
Here are some good ones.

4. Listening to more religious Christmas songs

I hope we can all draw closer to Christ these next few days as we celebrate his birth! 
Merry Christmas everyone!
