Meaning of Christmas

“Of all things of heaven and earth of which we bear testimony, none is so
important as our witness that Jesus, the Christmas child, condescended to
come to earth from the realms of His Eternal Father, here to work among men
as healer and teacher, our Great Exemplar.

And further, and most important,
He suffered on Calvary’s cross as an atoning sacrifice for all mankind. At
this time of Christmas, this season when gifts are given, let us not forget
that God gave His Son, and His Son gave His life, that each of us might have
the gift of eternal life.”

Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, Dec 1992, 2
