Merry Christmas To All!

"True happiness comes only by making others happy - the practical application of the Savior's doctrine of losing one's life to gain it. In short, the Christmas spirit is the Christ spirit, that makes our hearts glow in brotherly love and friendship and prompts us to kind deeds of service. 
It is the spirit of the gospel of Jesus Christ, obedience to which will bring 'peace on earth,' because it means - good will toward all men."
-President David O. McKay-

 A common site in New Zealand at Christmas time is to see the red flowers from the Pohutukawa Trees. 
Pohutukawa trees line many of the city streets through out the country.
Also in bloom right now are the beautiful bird of paradise plants.
