Christmas Programs

The Liahona received descriptions of Christmas programs from many families, wards, and branches from all over the world. Most programs included choir numbers or congregational singing of Christmas carols. Many reenacted scenes from the story of Christ’s birth as related in the New Testament or from His visit to the Americas as recorded in 3 Nephi.

The Rosas family of Zapopán, Mexico, reenacted the account of the Savior’s birth in the Book of Mormon for family and neighbors, including some nonmembers. For their Homemaking meeting, the Relief Society of the Engenho de Dentro Ward, Rio de Janeiro Brazil Stake, followed up their Christmas program by sending the sisters out to contact all the less-active sisters and give them a Christmas greeting. And members of the Taahueia Branch of the Tubuai Australes [French Polynesia] District made sure to invite nonmember friends to their Christmas program and party.
