Christmas in Oak Park, IL part 2

Did you know that Christmas was not always celebrated on December 25th? Maybe that Christmas is celebrated 13 days after the 25th, in the Greek and Russian orthodox churches? Charles Dicken’s created A Christmas Carol to illustrate the need for charity and good will during the Christmas season. However, it was America that brought upon the changes in the holiday as we presently know it after it was made a national holiday in the late 1800’s. I must admit I had to look at the link below to learn some of these facts about Christmas, as I am not always perfect but this was a great learning experience. The history channel’s website is a fantastic resource for article with Christmas information, videos about, pictures, speeches about the holidays along with other Christmas related information and items. I hope this helps increase the basic religious and cultural intelligence of the residents of Oak Park, IL so that they do not think because they are just putting up lights and going to church finally for annual visit means that they are exhibiting the spirit of Christmas. There is actually a lot more to it, although they are a lot of shallow individuals in this village that always put up a fake front of being “decent” people. I hope that learning more about the holiday will edge them closer to the practice of actually being that individual.
