News, C.S. Lewis, and Christmas

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted about an article I’ve read, and I think I’ve earned a post. I’ve shown great restraint on articles about chocolate making and a teacher assigning math homework (if those two had been combined, I couldn’t have been so strong). :)

I encourage you to read this very short Opinion article in the NY Times. It’s about C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and the way we celebrate Christmas. The author is not a Christian, but likes (their opinion of) Lewis’ approach to the holiday – a mixture of various pagan celebrations. It’s something I hadn’t thought about in relation to the Narnia books, and I’d love to hear your opinions!
