Christmas Light

“Christmas Light,” Friend, Dec. 2006, 2–3

A Christmas Message from the First Presidency to the Children of the World:
Christmas Light

First Presidency

In the Holy Land, a star appeared in the heavens at the time of the Savior’s birth. In the New World, there was light for a day and a night and a day to mark His coming to earth as a newborn babe. His life continued in light as He was the perfect example of obedience, goodness, and love.

As we study the Savior’s life and teachings, sing songs of joy to honor Him, keep His commandments, honor our parents, and love and serve one another, we will keep that light shining bright this Christmastime and all through the coming year.

President Gordon B. Hinckley
Thomas S. Monson
