The festival called Christmas is a celebration still under construction. It is a weaving of story, myth, custom and ritual. From its beginning, it has been debated, ignored, celebrated, banned and, from the mid 1800s, reinvented. In this exploration, Rex Hunt shares a brief story of the celebration of Christmas as a global and hybrid celebration; focuses on the Australian celebration of Christmas as expressed through such popular cultural events as (a) participation in Carols by Candlelight, (b) the sending and receiving of Christmas cards, and (c) the popularity and traditions around the red and ΓÇôwhite Santa Claus; and offers some of the suggestions and results from progressive biblical criticism of the birth narratives of Jesus/Yeshua of Nazareth and the resulting doctrines from those narratives.
