Over the years, the Christmas celebration has been one whose true intent has been flushed down the drain and replaced with so many other things that do not shed enough light on the true intent of Christmas.
In a bid to explain the season of Christmas and it’s significance,the Christian Litereary Hub called for submissions for a Christmas Anthology titled ‘Tales of Christmas’.
The submissions lasted for a month and ended on the 12th of December 2019.
Over 70 submissions were received from different countries with wonderful Christian writers expatiating more on the true meaning of the season by creative short stories and peoms.
The submissions were anonymously judged(name of writer not included) by a panel of three wonderful and competent judges which included Tobi Daniels, Omolola Comfort
and Oyinkansolami Alabi. The judging criteria included alignment with the Christian Faith, use of literary devices and grammatical accuracy.
The Christmas Anthology themed :’Tales By Christmas’ includes 25 entries (poems and short stories) with Jagunna Christos emerging as the winner with his beautiful piece followed by the runner up Owojuyigbe Mary with her beautiful poem “Oriental star”
