“Christmas,” Friend, Dec. 2007, inside front cover


Christmas is all about the love and remembrance we give the Lord. It is not all about presents and Santa Claus coming down the chimney. Most people say that Christmas is about being with your family and friends. They are right, but they left out a very important detail—that we should think of the Lord and His birth. Today we celebrate Christmas with toys, CDs, and all the stuff you can think of. When Jesus was born, they didn’t have all that stuff. They just had love and a few gifts from the Wise Men. So, it’s not all about presents. It’s about the love we share with our families. Christmas is a very sacred holiday. We celebrate it with peace in our hearts, good thoughts in our minds, and good actions toward all mankind. I hope we can all remember the true meaning of Christmas.
