I am grateful for Christmas.
I am grateful for the spirit of the day
and grateful for the outreach
that comes into our hearts at this season of the year
when we think a little more kindly of one another,
when there is a little less of bitterness,
when there is a little less of hate,
when there is more of love and more of a reaching out
to those in trouble and need and distress.
I thank the Lord for Christmas.
~ President Gordon B. Hinckley
