Inspirational Thought

"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.'"

—President Thomas S. Monson, The Best Christmas Ever, Ensign (Dec. 2008)
