30 Ideas For December: Put Christ In Christmas

During the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, find time to tune your heart. And your mind. Read the Christmas story in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Center yourself.

It's been a difficult Christmas this year. My fizz has fazzled. Other things seem far more important at the moment than Christmas. But when I take a step back and remember the true reason for celebration, my heart swells. I have renewed hope. I'm so so grateful for the birth of Christ. For all he did for us. No matter how buzz-buzz-busy you get this holiday season, don't forget to put some Christ into your Christmas.

people often get caught up in the hussle and bussle of things (myself included) so it is always nice to have a quick reminder about the true reason for Christmas.

A very merry Christmas to you!

No one has more Christmas Spirit than you, James. You always make things fun. Even if you have loved ones who are suffering this year, your Christmas Spirit will add some fizz to their fazzle...or whatever.

I'm lucky to spend the holidays with you!
