The Christmas Spirit -- Free Download

I realize that Christmas Day is gone, but thought I would share this free download of John Hilton III book The Little Book of Christmas Spirit. It talks of ways to make sure you have the true Christmas Spirit at this time of the year. You can get this free download until Jan. 25, 2010.

John writes, "This past year I wrote a book about how to get more of the true meaning of Christmas in our lives. It didn’t make it in print for this season, but Deseret Book has graciously made a free electronic copy of this available HERE. They are requiring site registration, but it will be available through Christmas.

One cool feature of this book is the way it is hyperlinked. The quotes are made in such a way that you can easily link to original sources. There are a variety of activities that YM/YW leaders/seminary teachers/Sunday school teachers could use in teaching a special Christmas lesson.Another exciting feature about this book is that it has a Creative Commons license. This license allows people to make derivatives of the book as long as they share it for free with others. My hope is that just as I have made the book available for free that some generous souls out there will create other versions of it and make those versions available for free. For example, a person could make an audio version of the book, or translate it into Spanish, or put it in another digital format. We can keep spreading the Christmas love to others who might not otherwise be able to access the book. In the meantime, I hope the book can help some of your readers get into the Christmas spirit!" ~ John Hilton III
