The History and Evolution of Christmas

Most of us know the historical meaning of Christmas where it originated from the Christian religion of the birth of baby Jesus. But with many non-religious people still celebrating Christmas, this forces us to question how the celebration has changed through time. Christmas has become a universal celebration with more than 2 billion people worldwide partaking in the tradition. But do you know why the 25th of December was picked as the date of celebration? And did you know Christmas was once banned in the UK?

James Cooper joined us from the UK where he is a Christmas expert, specialising in the Christmas tradition for more than 20 years.
