How The Universalists And Unitarians Invented Christmas; Plus An Anthology of Historical Unitarian Christmas Stories

Harvard Square is delighted to present our first ebook, which includes an account of the Universalist and Unitarian role in giving shape to the American Christmas celebrations we know today. It also includes five classic Christmas stories by Unitarian authors, including Rev. Theodore Parker’s own Christmas story. In Parker’s story, the gospel story of Jesus’ birth is overlapped with the account of the Christmas generosity of an elderly brother and sister that heals their New England village of it social divisions (including those related to which villagers voted for which Presidential candidate).
