Merry Christmas to All!

I recently received this video in an email from a dear friend of mine. It expresses my feelings for the true meaning of Christmas. At this time of year, I think we as a general population tend to be caught up in the celebrations, office parties, church parties, searching for that "perfect gift" and loose sight of the why of Christmas. Christmas has become a holiday that is more commercialized every year with stores vying for the almighty dollar that we all earn and spend. The reason why we celebrate Christmas is to remember the greatest gift that the world has ever received...the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior. He was the ultimate gift and we in our small way try to emulate His life and the love of our Heavenly Father by remembering Jesus Christ's birth and giving of gifts bought or made, and our love to those around us. May we be more gentle and kind during this season and hopefully inculcate these traits into our everyday life. Remember that most people are good...but just make mistakes. Look for the good in those around you. Tell them that you love them frequently and make sure that they know that you love them despite the mistakes that they make. Have no regrets.

I hope you enjoy this video. I hope that we will all remember the true meaning of the Christmas Season. I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
