Learn why the “Jolly Old Elf” feels this way about mistletoe - he's not that impressed, I warn you - and find out too, why he is known by different names around the world.
Discover how and why we celebrate Christmas when we do. Be surprised, and maybe event amazed, at when and how the traditions we currently associate with Christmas – cards, holly, mistletoe, crackers, turkeys to name but some – came about.
The presentation ends with the recitation of Clement
Clarke Moore’s famous poem A Visit From
St Nicholas, now universally known as ‘Twas
The Night Before Christmas.
