The History of Christmas
The History of Christmas will take you on a journey from Christ’s birth in Bethlehem, through Roman times and the Middle Ages, into the Reformation and then the Victorian era. You will finally touch down in our modern–day Christmas with all the things that make us think of this wonderful season – decorations, presents, delicious food. But as you take this amazing journey, you will discover the surprising twists and turns that Christmas has taken over the years.
Come alongside the men and women from the past as they try to figure out how Christmas should, or should not, be celebrated. Let the story of Jesus remind you of the real reason we celebrate at this time of year – that the Son of God was born as a baby and then lived and died to save sinners.
Marvel at the the beauty of history and the way that God works in our everyday lives year after year. As you think about Christmas may you be drawn closer to Christ and inspired to show His love to those around you.
