Legends and Lore of the Winter Holidays

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

December, with its long nights and festive celebrations, is a time for reflection and reminiscence. Join David Emerson of History on the Hoof as he conjures the ghosts of Christmases past to present the legends and lore of the winter holidays. Hear the traditional stories, learn of the origins of archaic customs such as the Christmas tree, and discover how the Victorians in general—and three authors in particular—revitalized and reinvented our favorite holiday. A veritable cornucopia of holiday treats certain to delight the entire family.
