PCE Lecture

ELizabethtown College, Leffler Chapel | website | Elizabethtown , false 17522 event website

The man in the red suite seems to be firmly entrenched in the modern Christmas, but this has not always been the case. In northern Europe, demons and threatening characters were part of the cast of midwinter festival traditions for centuries. Dr. Tara Moore, the author of Christmas: The Sacred to Santa, will tell the story of how the wild men of Europe became the domesticated and commercialized, and how they eventually turned into our modern Santa Claus.
