Experts Explain Christmas

Take a look at Christmas from a new perspective through the eyes of our expert academic staff.

‘Twas a few weeks before Christmas, when all through the campus
Students were wondering, what’s the fuss about Christmas?
So we’ve asked our academics to explain with care,
Their views on Christmas and we thought we’d share.

Our first academic looks at the evolution of the nativity,
Which has now turned into a modern day activity.
Our second speaker considers the first ever Christmas,
He’ll bust the myths and facts just for you to witness.

On to the next, who explores food and toddy,
And why overindulgence is bad for your body.
More videos to view about German festivity,
And how to combine Christmas and sustainability.

We’ll also consider consumer behaviour,
And how Christmas started with the birth of the Saviour.
Now let’s wrap this up, view the videos with delight,
So, Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
