I came across this Christmas talk given by President Thomas S. Monson in 1998, and wanted to share it. You can read the full talk here.
"This is a glorious time of the year, simple in origin, deep in meaning, beautiful in tradition and custom, rich in memories, and charitable in spirit. It has an attraction to which our hearts are readily drawn...Why does peace come closer to reality at this season than at any other? Why is it that more friends are remembered and more enemies forgiven at the Christmas season than at any other time? It is the Christmas spirit."
May we all turn our hearts to the spirit of Christmas, and experience the peace and happiness that comes with the season.
