|Temple Square at Christmas|
It's the Christmas season so therfore it is required to make a blog post about Christmas. So in order to prevent myself from becoming a Scrooge or a Grinch, I shall do such.

As you can see there are many attractions on temple square. One of which is the visitors center which is circled in red. It's an amazing building with so many pictures of Christ and various displays of Bible and Book of Mormon prophets. It even has a very large model map of the city Jerusalem back when Christ was on the earth and where everything is.
|Jesus Christ in Visitor Center|
In the main circular room stands an amazing statue of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The walls of this room are of the celestial heavens, of stars and the earth and the glories of the night sky. He stands there pure and magnificent, with open arms waiting to receive those who will come unto Him. His hands bear the imprint of the nails which peirced His hands as He willingly gave His life for us on the cross. Every time I enter that amazing place, tears fill my eyes as I look into His eyes and see the love that He has for me and all of us.
This is what Christmas is about, Jesus Christ. It's as simple as that, it's about the Savior. It is our the time of year we have to celebrate His magnificent birth. Without His coming into the world and His suffering we wouldn't be able to return to our Father in Heaven. May we remember through all the hectic hussle and bussle of the Christmas season that we reflect on that marvelous event.
"For behold, I say unto you there be many things to come; and behold, there is one thing which is of more importance than they all - for behold, the time is not far distant that the Redeemer liveth and cometh among his people." - Alma 7:7
