How the Universalists and Unitarians Invented Christmas

Service Leader: Karen Esterl  Greeter: Harvey Benson

Did you know the early Pilgrims discouraged observing Christmas and that Universalists were among the first Christians in the United States to encourage celebrating it? Did you know that Unitarians were responsible for bring the Christmas tree tradition to our country? Come listen to a dramatic reading of “How the Universalists and Unitarians Invented Christmas” to learn how current Christmas practices were shaped by members of our mother denominations. Karen will be joined by multiple readers for the service.
