Here is President Ronald Reagan’s first Christmas address from 1981 (about 4 minutes).

And here is President Barack Obama’s Christmas address from 2015 – his last Christmas message before the 2016 presidential election surprise (about 3 minutes).

President Obama’s message focused on family traditions and paid only passing lip service to the birth of Jesus…

President Reagan’s message focused on the wonder of the first Christmas … and why the Son of God – the Prince of Peace – chose to come into the world as a helpless baby. His entire message was Christ-centered … and emphasized the importance of trusting in God.

What other similarities or differences did you notice in the two Christmas messages?
