Christmas is a time of year steeped in tradition. Want to know where some of those traditions come from?
At the beginning of the 19th century Christmas was hardly celebrated. Many businesses did not even consider it a holiday. But by the end of the century it had become the biggest annual celebration and took on the form we recognise today.
