Mormons Celebrate Christmas

In much of the world, the month of December is spent anticipating Christmas on December 25th. Christians especially use the season to commemorate and remember the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior.

A few Christian groups decline to celebrate Christmas, and many people mistakenly believe Mormons are one such group.

Mormons do celebrate Christmas, and always have. Mormon Sunday services in December often feature Christmas themes and congregations sing traditional Christmas carols. Some Mormon chapels offer nativity displays for public viewing. Many LDS temples, including those in  Salt Lake City UtahWashington DCOakland California, and Mesa Arizona, feature elaborate Christmas displays with lights and music.

Each year, the Mormon church’s highest level of leadership–the President of the church and his two counselors–broadcast a Christmas devotional to meetinghouses and Mormon homes worldwide. This devotional features the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, which also performs a yearly Christmas concert with prominent guest performers.

The Mormon church’s official Youtube page includes many Christmas-themed videos, along with footage from the church’s Bible videos depicting the life of Jesus Christ.

Most Mormons choose to decorate their homes with Christmas themes and to celebrate Christmas with gifts and family gatherings. Mormon teachings encourage emphasizing the spiritual aspects of Christmas above the material items. Many Mormon congregations present concerts, theatrical events, or community creche displays that highlight Christ’s birth and mission.

Don't panic! You are in the right place!
