In Search of…the Real Spirit of Christmas

Every year we resolve to get into the “real” Christmas spirit. Yet Christmas seasons come and go, leaving us with vague pangs of regret. Why does it seem so hard? What are we missing? Familiarity can blind us to the unique power and glory of Christmas. Dan Schaeffer takes us beyond traditional trappings and into the wonder of the best gift of the season – the essence of Christmas. He offers a new lens of insightful observations about the first Christmas, addresses burnout in contemporary Christmas preparations, and gets beyond the story of Christmas to help us experience the spirit of Christmas.
