Christmas: A Biography Christmas A Biography by Judith Flanders by Judith Flanders


Christmas is all things to all people: a religious festival, a family celebration, a period of eating and drinking. In Christmas, bestselling author and acclaimed social historian Judith Flanders casts a sharp eye on its myths, legends and history, deftly moving from the origins of the holiday in the Roman empire, through the first appearance of Christmas trees in Central Europe, to what might be the origins of Santa Claus - in Switzerland - to draw a picture of the season as it has never been seen before.
