Episode 46: Winter Festivals - Traditions and Stories in the Dark

 

Welcome to the Dragons' winter holiday episode in which they will be looking at a variety of Winter traditions both old and new. Everything from Santa Claus' origins to why we build snowmen, the idea of a white Christmas and the pagan origins of the rebirth of the year king. Join us for a festive episode that explores just why we need to come together and celebrate in the darkest time of the year. On the slab this week, several Christmas films and stories but in particular Dicken's classic A Christmas Carol compared with the Muppets Christmas Carol.

 

Wishing all out listeners a Very Merry Christmas, A Happy Solstice, A cool Yule or other Winter Festival/ Non-denominationa holiday of choice!
