For members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), the Christmas season is a special time to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. Every year, Latter-day Saints gather with family and friends and recall the tender scene of “the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” (Luke 2:12). Like other Christians, Latter-day Saints recognize that without the Saviour’s atoning sacrifice and His victorious Resurrection, His birth in Bethlehem would not mean all that it does today.
