Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 65: December 24, 1903
Christmas is the one time in the year that all Christian people delight to honor. It is a time when one looks back upon one's past and sees the mistakes, the failures, the successes of life. For it is a day of charitable feelings, and one craves that mercy from all which is such a consolation to the soul of man. The happiest periods of our lives lie back in those days when we believed that Santa Claus was a real, live man, and that on the eve of Christmas day, he would leave his home far in the north and make a journey around the world in a single night. Every home would be visited, and how strange it was to us when we always received the very things that we asked for. Years after, we found that our childish dreams were all a mistake, and Christmas lost some of its charms. But in those dreams of Christmas eve was to be found a beautiful lesson for both old and young. Our thoughts were always centered upon something mysterious, and we drew nearer to the Lord and listened to the words of our Savior with more willingness. Who does not remember the old story?
