Christmas Traditions Around the World
Stephanie Wood Weinert with Karen Wood & Lara Pennell
One of the great joys of Catholicism is that the Church invites families to enter into the liturgy of the Church in their own homes, making them a "domestic church:" a place where the Faith comes alive through celebrations, food, family togetherness, and traditions that communicate the richness of our faith in a way that's easy to understand for even the simplest and youngest of minds.
In this popular discussion, two Catholic mothers share Advent and Christmas traditions from around the world. Learn about the Jesse Tree, the Advent wreath, St. Nicholas Day, the Feast of St. Lucy, and various cultural traditions for celebrating the great feasts of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and The Epiphany. Lara and Karen take you on an international tour of Italy, Spain, Japan, Germany, Sweden, Holland, and much more.
