A day school (10.00 am - 5.00 pm) looking at the many aspects of Christmas starting with the Gospel accounts - what might have happened and in what year and in which month? We progress to looking at calendar changes, Glastonbury and the many customs from holly to robins. One session will sort out the confusion behind Santa Claus and Father Christmas and the final session will look at the many novel customs dating from Victorian times up to the present day.
