"...As happens so often if we are not careful, the symbols can cover that which is symbolized. In some of our lives the manger has already been torn down to allow for a discount store running three-for-a-dollar specials on gold, frankincense, and myrrh."
Maybe Christmas Doesn't Come From A Store
By Jeffrey R. Holland
After working a seasonal job for the largest toy company in the world I have struggling to feel the magic and peace the Christmas season usually brings. Day in and day out I have watched people stalk through the isles of stores searching for "things" to buy, there were very few smiles and even less mention of a Merry Christmas. I know Christmas wasn't always like this and my Christmas wish is that our little family might more fully realize the true meaning of Christmas. Michael and I would like to wish all of you, our friends and family, a very merry Christmas! We hope you have a wonderful Christmas day filled with love, laughter and peace.
