352: Dec. 22: Christ Mass (New Testament Week 51)

The way we celebrate Christmas… with lights on trees, sharing gifts, carols with loved ones… is a mix of different traditions, and its present form is surprisingly recent! All traditions go back to Winter Solstice festivals… the hopeful celebration of the power of light in darkness, and the return of life after death and darkness.
