I want to briefly present some examples of Christmas popular culture.
I have chosen four:
(i) the Christmas Card,
(ii) the world’s most popular Christmas Song,
(iii) Christmas ‘Carols by Candlelight’,
(iv) the artistic development of Santa Claus.
And then address a couple of common assumptions, such as:
(i) I thought Christmas was about religion?
(ii) Is there a role for popular culture in religion?
(iii) What about the bloke we call Yeshu’a?
This amusing, but informational talk by the Rev Rex A E Hunt can be found here.
