How does a Jewish guy come up with the best Christmas playlist? Please make a CD of the full music tracks. Thks
Michael Medved has done a great job detailing the origin of so many Christmas traditions including the real life inspiration for Santa Claus, the use of garlands, Christmas lights and Christmas trees. He also gets into the stories behind Silent Night and how we came to celebrate why we celebrate Jesus Christ's birth on December 25 rather tha at the time of year he was probably born. Great audio for individual or family listening at Christamstime that fills in a lot of the blanks about this most special holiday. Only wish Michael had detailed the sources of the great music he used to get in out of the various segments.
The entire family loves the History Programs, and our favorite way to listen to them is on long road trips. We listen and discuss, and the miles just seem to go by more quickly. Thank you for these excellent, entertaining learning tools!
