“Finding the real joy of Christmas comes not in the hurrying and the scurrying to get more done, nor is it found in the purchasing of gifts. We find real joy when we make the Savior the focus of the season,” taught President Thomas S. Monson (“Christmas Is Love,” 2012 First Presidency Christmas Devotional).

The Church provides many online resources to inspire and focus members' attention on the Savior. Here are just a few free and easy things you can do to make Christmas this year less about what you purchase, give, or receive and more about the Savior Jesus Christ.

1. Watch the First Presidencys Christmas Devotional with seasonal music and inspiring messages.

2. Watch the “He Is the Gift” video and share it on social media with a personal message (#ShareTheGift, #ShareGoodness).

3. Watch the Bible Video “The Nativity.”

4. Scroll through the Church History Museum’s online gallery to see inspiring paintings relating to the Birth of Christ.

5. Listen to commercial-free Christmas music online on the Mormon Channel.

6. Listen to the 24/7 stream of Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas music and be sure to download five free Christmas songs.

7. Do the “Seek the Star” activity in the December 2014 New Era for a Christmas family home evening. Find more ideas for teaching children about Christmas from the Friend.

8. Browse the Media Library for Christmas images and Christmas videos you can download, use, and share to bring the Spirit of Christ into your life and home.
