Chill in the air



Dear weather in Chapel Hill,
Would you please turn down the heat...maybe like from 69 to, say, like, 29?  
It's almost Christmas, and a bit of chill in the air would really help
me have a little more Christmas spirit.

Love, not feeling so Hygge in North Carolina

“On this Christmas I send my love to every missionary, 
every man or woman in the military, every student, 
and every employee and traveler who won’t ‘be home for Christmas,’ 
as the carol says. Keep your faith. 
Look for the good in your situation. Do something kind for someone. 
Seek Christ devoid of wrapping and tinsel. 
You will find that despite external circumstances, 
Christmas—like the kingdom of God—is ‘within you’ (Luke 17:21).”

—Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
