    A little bit of history about Christmas. :)

    I know full well the history of Christmas and what the pope got up to, I've read all the Dan Brown books!:)


    The modern Christmas as we know it today was invented by the Americans, specifically the character of Santa, but in many ways this time of year has gone back to its ancient routes. About spending time with your family and having some lights on to brighten the short, cold days.
