Was Jesus actually born on December 25th?
Are Christmas trees pagan in origin?
Why did the author of “O Holy Night” try to stop his song from spreading?
My friend author Angie Mosteller answers these questions and more in her book, Christmas: Celebrating the Christian History of Classic Symbols, Songs and Stories.
You can listen to Angie talk about the Christmas trees and “O Holy Night” on this month’s podcast.
In her book, you’ll learn more of the intriguing history behind many of our Christmas symbols, songs and stories. You’ll find texts of favorite stories, as well as the words of Christ-honoring songs, so you can start new traditions of reading aloud with your family.
This is an amazing resource to make your family’s Christmas celebration more thoughtful each year.
