Poetry and the Magic of Christmas
Dec 24, 2017
Kirk j Barbera
Tonight I read "Twas the Night before Christmas."
Why did the Protestant Reformers, The New England Puritans and the Communist Soviets all HATE Christmas and St Nick? They squashed it and did all they could to bury it. Yet in America it took hold and morphed into something special.
Often, to understand an idea we must see what happens when our enemies destroy it. This does happen in history.
This is not a podcast about the war on Christmas. Instead, it is an episode about how the magic was taken away, and how I hope to help you bring it back.
