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.

Extra Features: Scripture Readings; Discussion Questions; Recipes and Activities.

… a wonderful journey through the traditions and ideas that have informed our celebration of Christ’s birth. More than that, it’s a study of people and events over the last 2,000 years that impacted the way we think about Christmas. … an engaging story of the way Christians have chosen to remember the Incarnation, complete with discussions, activities, and recipes for families to consider.

If you like history, you will love this Christmas book by Heather LeFebvre. If you don’t like history, you should still read this one. The author gives a good review of western history by tracing the celebration of Christmas across the centuries, from the days of the Roman Empire to the 1950s in New York City. She does not take the traditional textbook approach to history. Instead she takes the reader into the homes and lives of ordinary people.
