Although most of our current customs only go back a few hundred years – Father Christmas as we know him dressed in red and white much less – there has been a festival at this time in year for thousands of years. Although these days it is taken to mean the commemoration of the birth of Jesus, the date of December 25th was that of the winter solstice in Roman times, and other cultures have celebrated the darkest winter night for millennia. This book looks at all aspects of what the festive period means for people all over the world, beginning with a history of Christmas that looks at Yule, Nativity, and Christmas as well as pagan celebrations.
