Kerstmis - Discovery Christmas Customs and Folklore
Was December 25th really the birthday of Christ?
Some early Christians celebrated it on March 29th, others on September 29th. Why do we hang up mistletoe in our homes whe some vicars banish it from their churches?

Baker examines the origins of these seasonal rites, their connection, if any, with Christianity, and how they are still carried on.
