Christmas is many things to many people - from the eager, materialistic grasping of a child for a present to the deep spiritual thankfulness of the mature heart for the gift of a Savior. If there is one common denominator, perhaps it is this: Christmas is love. Christmas is the time when the bonds of family love transcend distance and inconvenience. It is a time when love of neighbors rises above petty day-to-day irritations, and doors swing open to give and receive expressions of appreciation and affection.
