Max is a young girl who just happens to have her birthday on Christmas- and she does not like it.

She also does not like her school assignment to write about Christmas.

It’s just easy to forget the real reason for the season. No stockings, gingerbread houses, or Christmas cards. We tried to get into the Christmas spirit by cutting out paper snowflakes and downloading Christmas songs from i Tunes.

This time of year I try to remember our teaching English in China. We even found a tiny 6-inch Christmas tree in the city.

Was it just a random date chosen by the early Christian fathers or is there more to it? Chadwick, an archaeologist and Herodian scholar, became interested in this question and thinks he has found an answer.

But as I sat down to read my husband’s letter, my entire mood shifted.
