Christmas and its Traditions with Dr Patrick Harding

Christmas and its Traditions with Dr Patrick Harding

Sun, 1st Dec 2019

All Day

Creswell Crags, Worksop United Kingdom (UK)

On the first day of Advent, we will be hosting Dr Patrick Harding for a short, entertaining talk about Christmas and its traditions and customs.

Starting with the Gospel accounts, this event will uncover the likely year and date of Jesus’s birth and investigate the so-called Three Kings, the Star of Bethlehem, and the problem with the overbooked inn. Dr. Harding will go on to explore the origins of customs such as holly, ivy, candles, crackers, cards, Advent calendars and Christmas trees.

There will also be time to look at Christmas food and drink, robins and most importantly Father Christmas and Santa Claus – they are not the same person!

Suitable for everyone from age 12 upwards, it will be a light-hearted talk with plenty of visual aids.

Dr Harding is the author of The Christmas Book (signed copies will be available for sale) and has featured in many television and radio programmes about Christmas.

Your ticket includes a hot drink and a mince pie!

£10 per person. Places are limited and this must be booked in advance. Please call 01909 720378 to book, or email
