General Conference is almost here again! We as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints look forward to this semi-annual event with anticipation and gratitude. We spend two days listening to counsel and teachings from our general leaders. (Archives at the link above from past conferences are available in 87 different languages. If you are interested in listening to the Conference this weekend, April 4-5, 2009, live internet streams will be available here. For more information about broadcast times worldwide, see here.)

How do you prepare for General Conference weekend? And do you have any special traditions associated with enjoying the spiritual feast?

For example, if you have children, what do you do to help them learn to love and listen to the messages?

Do you attend a broadcast in your building, or do you stay at home?

Do you eat special foods, or get together with friends or family during the weekend?

Or is each General Conference its own unique experience?
