Why Anyone (Even Humanists) can Celebrate Christmas

Professor David Kyle Johnson will discuss a history of the Christmas holiday and the real sources of some of its traditions. He will then argue that the “War on Christmas” is a farce and that it is perfectly acceptable for non-Christians to celebrate Christmas. He will close by discussing a few traditions that would be better left in the past. Presented by Lehigh Valley Humanists. Join us after for lunch at the Hamilton Kitchen!
