2L Christmas Spirit

2L writes: “Autumn and winter bring months of cold and darkness to the North. This is why we have always so warmly embraced the Christmas season in our part of the world. For we celebrate not only the Christian festival, we also celebrate the turning of the sun and the promise of longer, lighter days to come.” 

For more than two thousand years people have been fascinated by the story which is the basis of our celebration of Christmas in the western hemisphere. Writers and composers have found inspiration to convey the wonderful event in words and music. Musically the Christmas traditions are rich both in and outside the church. Several of our most beloved Christmas carols are based on folk music. Christmas is a season of expectation, peace and joy.”
