How Did Christmas Begin? @ Elma Public Library
Did Christmas really begin as a pagan feast, as so many authors claim? In truth, the reality is more complicated. Join Dr. Susan K. Roll as we journey back in time to the fourth century AD to find the first evidence for a Christmas celebration. We’ll also look at how Christians in the late Roman Empire managed to survive and how they lived. Presented through the Erie County Department of Senior Services University Express program for patrons age 55 and over. Call 652-2719 to register.
