Sundays are always good days with attending church meetings and being touched by spiritual talks and lessons and interacting with wonderful people. It was also my father's 84th birthday and I talked to him briefly. He was in the middle of a big birthday party, so it was a short conversation.
What brought the special Christmas spirit for the day was the social at the bishop's home. He and his wife always invite the members of the ward council and their families to enjoy an evening together during the Christmas season. There was food and socializing. Their home was decorated beautifully, which added to the special spirit. It was a nice evening and I left feeling the wonderful spirit of Christmas.
