Celebrating Christmas Video
This clip adds to the cultural celebrations of Christmas which are typical in Britain, some consideration of the special aspects of the festival for Christians. Advent, a four week countdown with advent wreath and 5 candles, symbolises Jesus as the light of the world. Nathan uses an Advent Calendar that is about remembering Jesus, not just scoffing chocolate every day! We see a Nativity play at a primary school, where children take the parts of characters in the story to make Christmas story feel real: they sing ‘Our light has come! The Son is born today.’ The special Christian Christmas celebrations include ‘Midnight Mass’ or a communion service very late on Christmas Eve.
A Jewish family welcome their Grandparents to celebrate Shabbat together. Just before dark the mother lights the Shabbat candles and says a prayer.
