"May your days be merry and bright"

"He is the light and the life of the world." -Mosiah 16:9

Ah Christmas! You're here again. What a wonderful concept for a holiday. It's a time to relax and be with family and friends. It's a holiday devoted to light-- lightheartedness, light wallets, lights in windows and in trees, and the Light of Christ. Elder Eyring gives a great talk about this called "Home for Christmas." There's something special about this time of year. My family and I used to pile into our car with blankets, hot chocolate, and a 10-pc. chicken McNugget and drive around town looking for the best decorated houses. This year, Cole and I put up our own lights and tree and it's amazing how it fills our little apartment with warmth.

Here we are with Santa

So happy you're almost here, Christmas!
