Our Christmas traditions are a composite of many cultures, including pagan beliefs. Two groups contributed the most: Germans and Victorians. This richly illustrated presentation includes the evolution of Santa, Christmas trees, Christmas cards, Christmas stories and songs and gift-giving and more. Learn how these spread from Germany to England to the United States. Also included is a mini-tour of the Physic Estate at Christmas.
