The real meaning of Advent – thought-provoking video challenging us to rethink our ideas of what Advent is really about.

Preparing for Christmas – sweet video by the diocese of Dublin

Advent – interesting take on what Advent is by Dr Rowan Williams

The Nativity Factor – short films with a difference, made to show that Christmas starts with Christ

Star News Bethlehem – NZ film made by children as a news programme.  Just excellent!

Digital Story of the Nativity – clever idea telling the story of Christmas through modern media

Jesus and Santa – Nice short Youtube video illustrating the difference between Jesus and Santa – responding to Bart Simpson’s view that Christmas celebrates the birth of Santa!

Retooning the Nativity – dispelling some of our Nativity myths

The True Christmas – short, beautiful, to-the-point
