Father Christmas granted a walk-on part in the Bible

Father Christmas granted a walk-on part in the Bible

The results of this survey, as reported in this article, are astounding in my opinion. I appreciate that not everybody has a Christian up-bringing or education in the country any more but some of the inaccuracies are both bizarre and illogical at the same time. Is it really true that over a third of the British public think that the Bible records 25th December as the date of the Jesus’s birth and significant numbers also think that Mary and Joseph might have brightened up the stable with a Christmas tree? John 11, verse 25.

One thought on “Father Christmas granted a walk-on part in the Bible

  1. This part of the article “Our Christian heritage is being corrupted and airbrushed and the central Christmas message about the birth of Jesus Christ is being lost’ sums up my feelings about Christmas. If you are Christian and you must celebrate it in the ‘modern style’, then at least do it for the right reasons not for the over commercialised, frenzied, greedy spectacle that is has become. Along with being an atheist, thats why I don’t do Christmas.
