Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior at Christmas, but our culture leans toward partying to the point of exhaustion. Many of us long for a simpler time when we didn’t face the pressures of the holiday.
This week, I gathered a group of historical fiction authors to give us a look at Christmas in history. Susan G. Mathis shared about the Yule Log, and Linore Burkhard talked about Christmas in Regency and Victorian times. Dave Fessenden covered traditions in the 1920s and Sarah Sundin finished with a look at the holiday season in World War II.
