I need to do a research paper. The assisgnment is research Christmas back to its ancient origins. Can you recommend some sites I can look into?
You should also go to www.google.com or scholar.google.com and use these search terms:
Jesus Christ birth
Keep in mind that, in the ancient Roman world, not much importance was attached to birthdays. The early Christians did not celebrate Jesus' birth, but Easter and all its meaning were the center of the early church's celebrations.
Thank you. I always have a hard time starting the introduction. Can you help?
Do not start with the introduction! You can't introduce something you don't know.
Follow these steps:
1. Do your research.
2. Devise a tentative thesis statement.
3. Outline the supports for your thesis.
4. Write the body of your paper.
5. Write the introduction and conclusion.
6. Revise and edit.
