Last night, the First Presidency Christmas devotional, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were reminded about the importance of remembering the Reason for the Season — to focus on the Savior, Jesus Christ, and on His love, His life, and His example.

The Relief Society message in my ward yesterday was along these lines. The teacher quoted from Jeffrey R. Holland, who said the following:

Maybe the purchasing and the making and the wrapping and the decorating—those delightfully generous and important expressions of our love at Christmas—should be separated, if only slightly, from the more quiet, personal moments when we consider the meaning of the Baby (and his birth) who prompts the giving of such gifts.

What do you do to help create moments like this at Christmastime? What traditions do you have that help you focus on the Savior during this season?
