Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. Traditionally, it is preceded by the season of Advent (preparing for the coming) and ended with the Feast of the Epiphany or Three Kings Day on January 6. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations is celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and forms an integral part of the holiday season centered around it.
“The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than in things.”
~ Thomas S. Monson was an American religious leader, author, and the 16th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It is my wish that you experience the spirit of love, generosity and goodness during this wonderful winter holiday season.
Put business aside for the moment to enjoy family, food and gift-giving!
