Coffee Hour November 1996: Christmas

Author: Author unknown, Issue: November 1996, Topic: Coffee Hour

As part of its activities, the information center sponsors a coffee hour discussion group every second Wednesday of the month from 2 to 4 pm, with invited guests giving a presentation from their area of expertise or experience. The guest for December is Father William Donegan, priest of the Tsukuba Catholic Church, who, very appropriately, will be discussing the celebration of Christmas around the world, including how the various traditions, such as Christmas trees and presents, Christmas cakes and turkeys, etc. developed. Likewise, he will deal with how the story of Santa Claus developed and how that has been adapted to tropical countries and Southern Hemisphere countries where it is summertime. If you have some unusual or distinct Christmas tradition in your country, won't you join us and share that with us? Everyone is welcome, and you can come and go as you please. Complimentary snacks along with tea and coffee are also served. So come out and join us.
