Christmas

One of the most important holidays on the Christian calendar, Christmas is also the most controversial. The so-called “Christmas Wars” garner headlines every year for battles over manger scenes and the use of “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” (and other seasonal greetings). But Christmas is also a time for theological and spiritual reflection on important foundations of the Christian faith, including the Incarnation and the Virgin Birth.
