Have Yourself A Meaningful Little Christmas


Christmas is getting closer as we journey into the last month of the year. It's time to ponder about the meaning of Christmas again. It's nice to just sit back and think about what to do for this Christmas (something different from last year, something more meaningful, something more fitting, or even something more Christmas-y). 

I began my Christmas celebration a week ago. I was pumped up to know that Christmas is just around the corner. I don't want to just celebrate Christmas on Christmas day. I want to begin celebrating it by doing something about Christmas daily...up until the day of. If you have not seen my Christmas video (hilarious country style Christmas dancing), you should go immediately to view it. After that, you should observe the Christmas tradition of giving me a kiss under the mistletoes here

Today, I bring to you a beautiful quote by President Thomas S. Monson: "Giving, not getting, brings to full bloom the Christmas spirit. Enemies are forgiven, friends remembered, and God obeyed. The spirit of Christmas illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than things. To catch the real meaning of the “spirit of Christmas,” we need only drop the last syllable, and it becomes the “Spirit of Christ.” Come enjoy The Best Christmas Ever.

This Christmas, let's give something, anything, to someone, anyone. A friendship, a smile, a greeting, a song, a kiss, a warm hug, a wink, a wave, or a "I love you, Merry Christmas," would do better than expensive, yet meaningless gift.

Wow, that is really poetic. I fully agree with this.
