Some thoughts on Christmas

December 22, 2017

In a recent article for The Conversation Canada, Dr. Matthew R. Anderson asks where did Dickens get his inspiation when he wrote A Christmas Carol ? You'll find the answer in his recent piece "Charles Dickens: The Man Who Invented Christmas Plagiarized Jesus."

Dr. André Gagné also wrote a piece on the story of Jesus' birth in French, "Connaisons-nous vraiment l'histoire de Noël?" (Do We Really Know the Story of Christmas?) for The Conversation France. Dr. Gagné was also interviewed on CTV by Mutsumi Takashi on the origins of Christmas and why we celebrate on December 25th. You can watch the interview on CTV Montreal.
