Video: The Meaning of Christmas in Narnia

Into the Wardrobe recently posted a thoughtful video exploring and speculating about the importance of Christmas in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Some of the pictures of Father Christmas in our world make him look only funny and jolly. But now that the children actually stood looking at him they didn’t find it quite like that. He was so big, and so glad, and so real, that they all became quite still. They felt very glad, but also solemn.

Merry Christmas! Long live the true King!

    This is so insightful! I would have never guessed how Christmas came into Narnia in the first place. Christmas is a symbol of hope. So removing Christmas is like removing the hope and joy that comes with it.
    Merry Christmas to all my Narniaweb family!

    Like many, it took me a bit to warm up to the appearance of Father Christmas in Narnia… but his scene is now one of my favorite parts both in the book and movie(s). This dig into his origins and significance was awesome (as is this guy’s channel!)

    “It’s nice to see Narnia is still alive and well.”
