The Big Picture of Christmas

I love traditions and coming up with meaningful new ones for my little family...I decided this year to put up the Nativity as a family.  We had a little lesson on the big picture of Christmas and then let the kids take turns picking a piece and talking about each one as they set it up.  
"No worry or anxiety over the choosing of gifts; no enjoyment of holiday feasts; no decorations however modern or attractive; no social parties however jovial, should ever overshadow the fact that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ who came to give life, light, and peace to all mankind, and who marked the way by which these eternal blessings may be obtained.  Let us ever remember that"...God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
(John 3:16)  ('Man May Know for Himself:Teachings of President David O. Mckay"pg 434)
This quote was a part of the lesson I found, it is a great reminder for me to remember what
Christmas is all about.
