Ep 47: The Gift of Christmas
Dec 9, 2021
Christmas is probably the most popular celebration in the world, maybe due to the ubiquitous commercialisation by retail businesses taking advantage of the year end holiday season and buzz. Well, who doesn't know Santa Claus, Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer and the familiar Christmas songs!
But what is Christmas actually beyond the Christmas tree, presents and turkey? Like many religious celebrations, those outside the Christian community may have only a little understanding of its history and significance. Are there practices during Christmas that are purely religious and others are mainly due to culture? Beyond religious beliefs and practices, what are the good values and community spirit that Christmas brings? Are there controversies surrounding Christmas that non-Christians are not aware of?
We are fortunate to have someone who is qualified to answer these questions and many more. Who else but WADT co-host and former pastor, Parcsen.
We take this opportunity to wish WADT followers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
