festival, it is also a universal cultural and commercial phenomenon.

exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, singing carols, waiting
for Santa Claus to arrive, But the roots of Christmas has a different
story to retell..

revelry. Rowdy medieval carolers begged for food and drink, threatening
to throw rocks through the windows of those who refuse, and more! The

surprising to disturbing beginnings.
