A festive History

This is the final talk in Thame Museum's programme of monthly online talks. Mid December has long been a time for rituals and rejoicing. Yet the history of Christmas has not been straightforward; its celebration was banned in Puritan times and its traditions splintered into many guises before the Victorians rehabilitated the Festival into what it has become. Join Andy Thomas, writer, lecturer and broadcaster, as he shows how, for all the modern commercialisation, we can still find meaning in Christmas today.
