S4-Ep.3 The History of Christmas Episode - In Which Mum Avoids a Viking’s Mistletoe Kiss

11Dec

Merry Christmas everyone!  It's our first weekly Christmas episode and this week we're talking about THE HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS.  We're going all the way back to the time of the dinosaurs, to see how they celebrated Christmas...OK, maybe that's an exaggeration but we go pretty far back.  Romans, Egyptians, Puritans, and Victorians, we got them all!  Mum talks about the origin of Father Christmas, and reveals how old Rudolph is.  There's also a Christmas related Guess Who Isn't Coming To Dinner.  Stacey tells us about the less romantic side of mistletoe; and has an unrelated news story about a man who refuses to act his age.
