Christmas in community

“ Christmas is for rich families with two kids; for our family it is hell. My brother died at Christmas when I was four, so my Mum drinks her way through it. My father stays away and I get torn between looking after them both.”

Regardless of whether your Christmas is all about the gifts or all about the compassion, whether it rings true with your religious views or not, Christmas affects us all. ALTERnativity works to ensure that Christmas is a time of celebration for all.

This section will steer you towards tips on how to introduce Christmas-related themes within your local community or in a global context.

You’ll also find a wide range of resources in our shop. More information about our work with community organisations is available in Community Partners and Christmas Stories.
