Christians of every denomination recognize the birth of Christ as one of the most significant events in all of history. There is unspeakable profundity in the fact that the God of the Universe came to dwell on earth as a man. Yet, the great importance of this event is often lost in American culture, as is the intriguing history associated with the symbols, stories and songs of Christmas.
For this reason, we have set out to create a content rich site for Christians who are seeking to better understand the history of Christmas, as well as the traditions associated with the holiday in the U.S. We have even included recipes, crafts and other ideas. If you have any questions that are not answered on this site, or if you have suggestions for ways that we can improve content, please contact us.
May your holiday be rich and meaningful!
