Talk: The Psychology of Christmas

Have you ever wondered what that Christmas gift you give reveals psychologically about what you really think about the relationship, or what that present you got discloses about what the giver thinks about you? Are you aware of how gifts came to be given at Christmas and why Economists think we should give cash instead? And why psychologists think that is a terrible idea?

Come along to a light-hearted talk on the Psychology of Christmas followed by a screening of 'Scrooged'. This Bill Murray hit comedy is a bit forgotten today but it remains one of the most genuinely funny films about Christmas ever made, but is more than just hilarious - does it reveal what the true spirit of Christmas is and can it change your mind about Christmas. Based on Charles Dickens' story the Hollywood take poses some interesting questions including is Christmas just one massive manipulation of us by big business? Is Christmas stressful because it challenges us to think more fundamentally about what our lives are about? Come along and enjoy the film and then take part in a conversation and discussion about what the film is really about by Dr Raj Persaud Harley Street Consultant Psychiatrist.


Venue: Lost Rivers Elephant, Elephant & Castle

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
