This is really cool!

The video below shows the beautiful diversity in church services and traditions to celebrate Christmas around the world in 1950. Starting in Great Britain, you then travel to the United States, Holland, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Greece, Japan, Canada, Mexico, and finally to where Jesus was born, Bethlehem.

Despite all the different customs, they’re all celebrating the birth of the same Lord and Savior!

The video is from British Pathé, which produced newsreels and various other kinds of content for 60 years in the mid-20th century.
