Christmas can be a crazy time of year. There are parties to plan, events to attend, and decorations to put up. Not to mention presents. Sometimes it’s difficult to find those peaceful moments that are so important at Christmas time. It’s in those moments that we remember our Savior Jesus Christ, and we grow closer to Him.

Here’s an idea: What if we combined the present-giving part of Christmas with the remembering-Christ part? These five ideas can get you started.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. —John 3:16
Supplement to the Ensign

Elder Russell M. Nelson
We are pleased to announce the month-long Christmas initiative, “He Is the Gift.” Beginning November 28, He Is the Gift focuses on God’s love for the world, made manifest in the first gift of Christmas, even the Lord Jesus Christ.

Use this activity to help your family find the true light of the Christmas season.

It’s your turn for the family home evening lesson, and since it’s December, you want to do something Christmas-related. Acting out the Nativity is probably the first thing that pops into your head, but Mom and Dad have that lined up for Christmas Eve. So here’s another bright FHE idea that’s out of this world as a galactic way to teach your family about keeping Christ in Christmas.

Materials Needed: A star. You may have one on top of the Christmas tree. If not, just tap into your inner artist and make one out of paper. Make sure it’s fairly small, because you’ll be hiding it around the house.

Responding to an invitation from the Liahona, Latter-day Saints from around the world shared traditions they have developed in their families, wards, and branches that have brought them closer together and helped them focus their celebration of Christmas on the Savior.

Doorstep Nativity

This family Christmas tradition started on a doorstep and ended up in the mission field.

Every December since I can remember my family has bought a nativity set, and every year we give it away. As a family we decide who we will give it to. Usually we choose someone in our ward or neighborhood who does not have family in the area, or someone who may feel lonely over the Christmas season.
