How did we go from the birth of Jesus to Santa, stockings, reindeer, the North Pole, Christmas trees, and Kris Kringle? Does any of this come from Christianity or real-world historical events? The surprising answer is “YES” (well, much of it anyway)! Join Frank as he welcomes the ever insightful historian Bill Federer onto the show to share the fascinating story of how so many Christmas traditions originated and have been passed down to us today.

If you want to see a visual presentation of this, be sure to watch the Hope ONE Livestream from December 23rd with Bill Federer. It is posted on our YouTube Channel.
