Two thousand years ago, something happened that would change the world forever: a child was born. Two thousand years ago, in the tiny city of Bethlehem, the event that would forever change the world unfolded quietly in the most humble of circumstances. In all of history, Christ's birth was unique. Similarly, of all the holidays we celebrate, nothing can compare to the holiday that celebrates His birth. Holly and pine boughs, candles and ornaments, peace, love, and tradition all remind us of the ties that bind us to each other and to our Savior. Because of Christ's divine birth, family ties can literally become eternal. This Christmas, curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and let the chapters in this book guide you through the symbols of the season and the real story of Christmas. Interwoven with insights from the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible, the words of the prophets, and insights from the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, this age-old Christmas story will take on new meaning and new life like never before.
