So you think you know Christmas?

It could be argued that most people in the UK celebrate Christmas, but does everyone who does celebrate the festival know why it is celebrated at all? Do they know why they put up a tree, or send cards, or even eat turkey?

This was the inspiration behind the writing of What is Myrrh Anyway? If you want to know why Father Christmas rides a sleigh pulled by a team of reindeer, why robins are so associated with the season, or even what a boar's head has to do with Christmas, then this is the book for you.

But if you think you know the answers to these questions already, then why not check out the Christmasology site and find out how much you really know.
