 Description: ´╗┐Why do we celebrate Christmas on December 25? How did the good Bishop Saint Nicholas become Santa Claus? Why do we have Christmas trees, Nativity plays and Christmas carols?

Charting Christmas provides answers to these questions and more as it explores the history, myths and legends of Christmas from Charles Dickens to St. Boniface and St. Francis of Assisi, and even the Coca-Cola Corporation.

Historians and Biblical scholars discuss the biblical accounts of the birth of Christ and the prophecies concerning the coming of the messiah amidst the historical scenery from Israel and the United Kingdom.
