Inviting Christ Into Christmas

One way to invite Christ into your Christmas celebration is to place pictures of Jesus on your Christmas tree that illustrate different moments in the Savior's life. Then as you sit around the tree in the evenings invite each family member to choose a picture and tell the story that goes with that picture.

Last night my son was telling the story of Mary and Joseph bringing Jesus to the temple after he was born. We couldn't remember the names of the special man and woman he met there. This required that we open our scriptures. Telling stories about the life and mission of Jesus Christ is a beautiful way to understand the reason for the season.
