‘In his name the nations will put their hope.’ (Matthew 12:21)
Over the next couple of weeks, you’ll be hearing from neighbours in nations near and far – including stories of the ways they celebrate the joy and hope of Christmas.
Whether it’s a midnight carol service by candlelight, or baking something special, the ways we mark this celebration occasion that unites all Christians are many and varied.
Maybe you grew up somewhere where an angel dropped gifts under the tree while your family shared a meal on Christmas Eve – as is the case for some in Germany?
Perhaps your memories of celebrating Jesus’ birth are saturated in Southern Hemisphere sunshine and the smell of turkey on a barbeque?
Or it might even be that this is your first Christmas as a Christian, meaning the day has taken on a new significance and this year will be the start of a new kind of hopeful celebration for you?
Please share with us what makes Christmas special for you!
