A Christ-Centered Christmas
 December had come. The house wasdecorated, most of the presentsbought, and Megan and I weredriving in the car listening toChristmas carols. Strapped into hercar seat and bundled up in herwinter coat, Megan did her best tosing along. Then, just as one songended and another began, Megansaid one simple sentence that foreverchanged the way our familycelebrates Christmas.
“Mom,” shebegan, “I believe in Santa Claus, and you believe in Jesus Christ.” 
 
 It was a moment of epiphany. I thought back over all of our holiday preparations and the experience we had created for our children. Wehad written letters to Santa, had talked about being good for Santa, and had counted down the days until Santa would come. We had spent themajority of the season teaching our children to believe in the reality of  Santa Claus, and because of our efforts they trusted that he reallywould come. But suddenly I realized that we had not spent the sameamount of time teaching them to believe in the reality of the Savior. thought over all of the traditions that filled our holiday season and 
realized that none of them strengthened my children’s belief in Jesus
Christ.

Quotes on Gift Giving
Though we make an effort to followthe pattern of gift giving, sometimesour program becomes an exchange
 gift given for gift expected.Never did the Savior give inexpectation. I know of no case in hislife in which there was an exchange.He was always the giver, seldom therecipient. Never did he give shoes,[socks], or a vehicle; never did he giveperfume, a shirt, or a [coat]. His giftswere rare ones: eyes to the blind, earsto the deaf, and legs to the lame;cleanliness, wholeness to the infirm,and breath to the lifeless... We shouldstrive to give as he gave.- Spencer W. Kimball
We all enjoy giving and receiving presents. But there is a differencebetween presents and gifts. The true gifts may be part of ourselves
  giving of the riches of the heart and mind 
and therefore more enduringand of far greater worth than presents bought at the store...This Christmas and every Christmas will be richer by sharing and enjoying gifts that cannot be held but only felt.- James E. Faust 
What did you get forChristmas?
This is the
universal question amongchildren for days following thatmost celebrated holiday of theyear. ... The gifts so acquiredare fleeting. Dolls break,dresses wear out, and fungames become boring. ... If wechange but one word in ourChristmas questions, theoutcome is vastly different.
“What did you give forChristmas?”
promptsstimulating thought and causestender feelings to well up and
memory’s fires to glow
 ever brighter.-Thomas S. Monson
