Christmas is one of the best seasons of the year, for it not only celebrates the birth of Jesus, but it also looks forward with hope to the peace that will spread to all the earth as a result of His coming.
As you celebrate Christmas, try not to let the hustle and bustle of the holiday remove your focus from the true reason for the season.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child.
