President Barack Obama visited the Boys and Girls Club in Washington, D.C. Tuesday to deliver a message of why we celebrate Christmas.
"You know, I think that the most important thing is just to remember why we celebrate Christmas," Obama told the children.
"I know," one of the children said.
"Do you know?," Obama asked.
"The birth of baby Jesus," the child answered.
"The birth of baby Jesus, and what he symbolizes for people all around the world is the possibility of peace and people treating each other with respect," Obama said. "And so I just hope that spirit of giving that's so important at Christmas. I hope all of you guys remember that as well. You know, it's not just about getting gifts but it's also doing something for other people. So being nice to your mom and dad and grandma and aunties and showing respect to people -- that's really important too, that's part of the Christmas spirit, don't you think?"
Obama also talked about the wise men who brought gifts to baby Jesus.
