A New Tradition for the Darwinian Holiday

Anika Smith

Quick question: What upcoming holiday would have priests in white vestments admonishing you to turn off your TV and take comfort in hearing an old story?

If you’re tired of watching It’s a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Carol yet again, perhaps Darwin can occupy your cold winter nights. As a holiday treat, Origins would like to point out that this summer’s Darwin Festival in Cambridge, U.K., has compiled videos of many of its sessions, which typically start with a reading from Darwin’s correspondence.

“If you’re tired of watching It’s a Wonderful Life yet again”?!
Clearly these people are barbarians.
