In this week’s episode, Jill Devine sits down with Ryan Pfendler to talk about Christmas. This time last year was Jill’s first time celebrating Christmas as a church worker and there were a number of things she was learning in preparation for one of the biggest days of the year in the church. For example, December 25th was Jesus’ actual birth date OR was it?

Highlights from the episode include:

*Pagan holidays, Saturnalia, Midwinter Festivals, and the Winter Solstice


*Abbreviating the word Christmas

*The meaning of Advent

*Season of waiting

*Our wish this Christmas
