    What better way to commemorate the birth of the Savior than to present a special program concerning His birth on Christmas Morning?

    Too many members of our LDS Church will be thinking more of Santa than remembering the Savior when we have a shortened Christmas Sunday worship. It saddens me to see the church cut back Sunday meetings on Christmas.

    I believe this is the right thing to do. The First Presidency sent out a letter a few weeks ago describing the meetings for Sunday, December 25. The units will basically have sacrament meeting and then go home. After all Christmas is the time for the family to be together. The units will do the programs as they see fit to do so. I don't see the need for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to have to put on a show that Sunday. Let them be with their families and go with them to their respected units to worship that day.

    After all it is a time for pondering and reflecting upon the Birth of the Savior.

    awesome because we don't have a car and getting there on sunday is a no can do. We will be able to make the Thursday morning recording before going over to the Salt Lake Temple to do a session.

    The article did not mention how often this has been done in the past. It has been our family tradition to attend the Sunday before Christmas or (I am sure in the past) on Christmas Day. We will have to make the call about whether to go on Thursday or break tradition this year.

    As an active member of the LDS Church, I wonder why the Tabernacle Choir does not have a live Sunday Morning Program on Christmas Sunday.

    Catholic and Anglican Christian churches have a special Christmas Eve Midnight Mass to remember the birth of the Savior. Most Protestant churches also have special Christmas programs on Christmas - whether Christmas occurs on Sunday or any week day.
