Thinking about Christmas and contemporary society
Christmas is the time of year when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus - but we do not know when Jesus was actually born.\nWhy did Christians take mid-winter as the time for their celebration?\nHow do Jews and Muslims feel about living in a society which is traditionally Christian? How is the current fashion for atheism affecting the way we celebrate Christmas?\nCan you trust a text which is attributed to someone well known and respected. The Ben Stein article is not all it seems.\nThis resource includes a range of articles to get our pupils thinking.
