Over the years, our family has celebrated Christmas in lots of different ways. Sometimes we have lots of relatives. Sometimes it is just our small family—now even smaller with our daughters married, with homes and celebrations of their own. One year we had the flu, and quarantined ourselves. We usually attend a church service, with candles, carols, and a moment to stop and reflect. Every year has included joy and frazzled nerves, chaos and peace.
But no matter how we spend Christmas this year, it’s still Good News:
Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
