Christmas Eve

One calendar month from today is Christmas Eve! But how much do you know about that particular date in the calendar?

For example, why is fish traditionally eaten on Christmas Eve?
Why do children hang up stockings for Father Christmas at that time, when Saint Nicholas' Day is 6 December?
What's a Dumb Cake, and what's it for?
And did you know that you shouldn't actually put up your Christmas tree and other decorations until Christmas Eve?

The answers to all these questions - and more - can be found in What is Myrrh Anyway? available now from all better bookshops, and online at
