As we approach Christmas 2019 we must admit it is a very different festivity than that experienced fifty or even thirty years ago. The re-creation of the birth of Jesus is barely considered against the far more popular annual arrival of Santa Claus in or on a variety of transport devices. Even the reindeer and sleigh are obsolete.
But people still seem to need some form of spirituality or community fellowship and undertake activities in the hopes of promoting world peace.
Servas International is an international, non-profit, non-governmental federation of national Servas groups, encompassing an international network of hosts and travelers. The purpose of the network is to help build world peace, goodwill, and understanding by providing opportunities for personal contacts among people of different cultures, backgrounds, and nationalities.
